LUFC Grayson - Leeds are a better side than us

Former Leeds United boss Simon Grayson admitted after the game that Leeds are a better side than Huddersfield Town on the performance between the two on Saturday.

The game was the first time that Grayson has come up against his former club since being sacked by Leeds at the start of February.

Huddersfield made the perfect start, going ahead after twelve minutes through Chris Atkinson but a mistake by goalkeeper Alex Smithies allowed Leeds back into the game just past the half hour.

Leeds were soon ahead through Luciano Becchio and despite Huddersfield going in level thanks to a penalty from former Leeds midfielder Adam Clayton, Leeds dominated the second half to leapfrog Huddersfield in the table, running out 4-2 winners in the end thanks to goals from David Norris and a second for Becchio. Speaking on the Huddersfield official website, Grayson admitted, "On today`s performance Leeds are a better team than us."

Huddersfield had started the game well and their midfield was finding time and space, especially Clayton, whose through ball found Atkinson for the opening goal.

Leeds started to dominate the midfield area after that and David Norris, Michael Tonge and Paul Green all played their part in closing down and harrying the Huddersfield players, winning their personal battles.

Luciano Becchio and Ross McCormack troubled the Huddersfield defence and the defence looked solid as Paddy Kenny had a fairly quiet second half and Grayson admitted after the game that Leeds won all the individual battles.

"After we opened the scoring, we seemed to sit back and stop doing the same things that had given us such a bright opening. Once they had equalised we stopped doing everything, we lost individual battles all over the pitch and as the game went on we didn`t have a spark up front."

The defeat for Huddersfield makes it four games without a win for Grayson's side who have dropped to fourteenth in the championship.
