LUFC Grayson - There could have been more changes

LUFC Grayson - There could have been more changes

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson said one or two players were fortunate to remain in the side despite making five changes for the game with Burnley.

Grayson promised wholesale changes after what he called an embarrassing defeat at Barnsley on Saturday and he was true to his word when the team was announced.

Michael Brown and Ross McCormack dropped to the bench whilst Paul Connolly and Mika Vayrynen were not included in the sixteen.

Andy Keogh returned to Wolves today after coming to the end of his half season loan.

Grayson added young Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend to his squad yesterday and admitted he tried to bring in a few others to end a run of three straight defeats.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said, "Based on the game the other day, there could have been quite a few more but we just did not have the personnel to do that.

We tried to get one or two other players over the last 48 hours but unfortunately, we could not do that. It was needs-must to try to get the team going.

"We had to change it around, one or two players who were in the team were fortunate to still be in it."


Townsend went straight into the Leeds side and he was joined by youngster Zac Thompson and Alex Bruce, who was making his first start since February, after being recalled from his loan at Huddersfield Town only last week.

Adam Clayton and Luciano Becchio also started after dropping to the bench at Barnsley.

Leeds responded with a thrilling 2-1 win over Burnley at Elland Road with both Leeds goals coming in the closing minutes of the game.
