LUFC Bruce hoping for Leeds future

LUFC Bruce hoping for Leeds future

Alex Bruce is hoping to resurrect his Leeds United career after a frustrating 2011 at Elland Road.

Bruce made his first start for Leeds in the 2-1 win over Burnley on Monday, since the 3-0 defeat at Swansea City towards the end of February.

The defender looked all set to be on his way out of Elland Road in January after joining Huddersfield Town on loan in November with the view to a permanent move.

He made three appearances for Huddersfield before Leeds recalled Bruce over the festive period, after injuries to fellow defenders Tom Lees and Leigh Bromby.

Bruce is out of contract in the summer but he is hoping to do enough in the second half of the season to stay with the club. Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post , Bruce said, "Getting back playing for Leeds is something I`m proud to do and hopefully my future will be carrying on playing here.

"Since I played my last game, against Swansea, it`s been the most frustrating time of my career without a shadow of a doubt.

"I`ve had some low days and to get back out there on the pitch in front of the magnificent supporters that we`ve got was very pleasing. Thankfully, we got the right result as well.

"I want to stay on the scene and kick on now. I`m proud to wear the shirt and if I can kick-start my career here, I`ll be delighted."


Bruce suffered a hamstring injury late in the game with Burnley and with the three substitutions already being made by Leeds he remained on the pitch.

The injury to Bruce adds to Leeds problems in defence with four defenders now on the sidelines.

Leeds have yet to reveal the extent of the injury to Bruce and they are also waiting on fellow defender Patrick Kisnorbo, who had to be replaced early in the game with a knee injury.

Leigh Bromby is expected to be sidelined for another three weeks with a calf injury and Tom Lees missed the Barnsley and Burnley games with a head injury, although it is hoped he will be fit for the game with Arsenal on Monday.
