LUFC Leeds United - Around the goals
A look around the Football League this weekend at the former Leeds United players who have got their names on the scoresheet.
With no Premier League or Championship fixtures this weekend due to international fixtures we start with England`s opening World Cup qualifier in Moldova with former Leeds man James Milner scoring in the 5-0 win.
Robbie Keane was on target for Republic of Ireland in their 2-1 win in Kazakhstan. Ireland looked to be heading for a defeat until Keane levelled on 89 minutes from the penalty spot. They still had time to find a winner in stoppage time.
Moving into the Football League, we start at Gigg Lane, where former Leeds trainee Shane Cansdell-Sheriff scored what was to prove the winner for Preston in their 2-1 win at Bury.
Danny Cadamarteri scored for Carlisle United in their 2-1 win at Hartlepool United.
It was a mixed day for two former Leeds players in the game at Glanford Park, between Scunthorpe United and Sheffield United.
Mike Doyle who spent a season on loan at Elland Road in Leeds promotion season of 2009/10 was sent off for the blades inside 15 minutes. Trailing 1-0 their chances in the game were made even worse when they were reduced to nine men with eighteen minutes remaining but former defender Neil Collins headed a late leveller for Sheffield United.
In League Two there was just one former player on target. Sam Hird who came through the academy at Elland Road but never made a senior appearance, scored the opener for Chesterfield in their 2-2 draw at York City.
