LUFC Clayton expecting rough ride on Leeds return

LUFC Clayton expecting rough ride on Leeds return

Former Leeds United midfielder Adam Clayton is expecting a rough ride from the fans when he returns to Elland Road for the first time on Saturday with Huddersfield Town.

Leeds boss Neil Warnock saw Clayton as surplus to requirements last summer and he was placed on the transfer list to the surprise of most fans.

The midfielder joined up with former Leeds boss Simon Grayson at Huddersfield and after scoring from the penalty spot in the game between the two sides in December, he celebrated his goal in front of Warnock.

Clayton says it wasn`t pre-planned and it wasn`t aimed at the Leeds fans who had made the trip.

Speaking in the Huddersfield Daily Examiner , Clayton said, "It wasn`t aimed at the Leeds fans, it was between myself and Neil Warnock, a spur of the moment thing, and we had a laugh about it afterwards.

"I`ve certainly no problem with the fans over there, and I`d love to see Leeds get back to the Premier League, because that`s where they belong.

"But I`m expecting some boos, and to be honest, the more the better because that will mean I`m having an impact on the match."


Clayton spent two years at Elland Road following his arrival from Manchester City in 2010.

After making just four appearances for Leeds in his first season, a season where he spent most of it out on loan, Clayton became an integral part of the Leeds midfield after a successful pre-season campaign.

He made 46 appearances in his second season and he chipped in with 6 goals, including crucial goals at both West Ham United and Leicester City.

Clayton will be the only one with former Leeds connections involved in the game on Saturday.

Grayson was relieved of the manager`s position last month, being replaced by Mark Robins and former striker Jermaine Beckford remains on the sidelines through injury.
