LUFC Norris close to a return

LUFC Norris close to a return

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock has been boosted by midfielder David Norris returning to training.

The midfielder looks to be ahead of schedule on a return after suffering a thigh injury in the 3-3 draw with Blackburn Rovers at the start of the month that has seen him miss the last three games.

Norris was not expected to return before the international break in a fortnight`s time but Warnock feels he could be back before, although he thinks the game this weekend at Bristol City will come too soon.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "David Norris has done some running this week, so he is not far away. Whether he will be involved on Saturday, that might be a bit too early but we don`t know."

Elsewhere amongst the walking wounded, club captain Lee Peltier has returned to training after suffering an ankle injury in the win over Nottingham Forest last weekend. Peltier missed the cup win over Everton in midweek but did some light training on Thursday.

Warnock is not sure about a return this weekend for goalkeeper Paddy Kenny. Kenny also suffered an injury last weekend but Warnock is not too concerned if he has to rely on Jamie Ashdown who started in the game with Everton. "I am not too concerned if Paddy is not fit for this weekend. I thought Jamie did really well the other night, so if we have to give Paddy one or two games, then we will," added Warnock.

Leeds still have three games between now and the international break. They travel to Bristol City and Bolton Wanderers in the space of four days before going into the international break with a home game against Barnsley.

After a torrid start to the season with injuries, Warnock will hope to give his players a rest during the international break with Luciano Becchio and Adam Drury also carrying knocks.

Warnock will hope to have them all fighting fit when the season resumes after the international break with a trip to Sheffield Wednesday. That game could also see the return of Paul Green who hasn`t played since the opening day of the season against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
