LUFC Becchio and Drury to be given time

LUFC Becchio and Drury to be given time

With Neil Warnock`s injury list showing no sign of easing the Leeds boss is going to give injured duo Luciano Becchio and Adam Drury as much time as is needed to prove their fitness for the weekends game with Nottingham Forest.

Becchio limped out of the game with Hull City in midweek with an ankle injury and Warnock says he is hoping he will be ok and the decision to replace him straight away helped. Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "Hopefully Luciano will be ok. He is going to do some light training. We took him off straight away because we didn`t want it to be a long-term injury and that did help putting the ice on it straight away."

Drury missed the midweek game with Hull after being forced off at half time last weekend in the defeat at Cardiff City.

The defender picked up a muscle strain and Warnock says he has also returned to light training and he will probably give the pair a fitness test on Saturday. "Adam is doing some light training and we will leave it as long as possible. We are going to give it all the time, even if it takes until Saturday morning. We will probably have a fitness test for both Luciano and Adam on Saturday," continued Warnock.

Warnock will be desperate for Becchio to play after losing last season`s leading goalscorer Ross McCormack only last weekend with a long-term injury.

Becchio is amongst the leading goalscorers in the division this season having netted six times already.

With no loan signings imminent, Warnock may have to turn to Andy Gray in attack if Becchio fails to recover in time for Forest.

Gray in his second spell with Leeds scored his first senior goal for the club in the defeat to Hull.
