LUFC Good news for goalkeeper following injury

Leeds United goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown is set to start the long road back to fitness after x-rays gave him the all-clear to return to training.

Ashdown has been out since last April following a toe injury that has seen him undergo two operations to try to resolve the problem.

The goalkeeper, who joined from Portsmouth in the summer of 2012, is now set to return to light training.

The 32-year-old was back-up to number one goalkeeper Paddy Kenny in his first season at Elland Road.

Ashdown was given his opportunity in the cup competitions and he impressed as Leeds beat Everton, Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur on their way to the quarter-finals of the League Cup and the fifth round of the FA Cup He made eight appearances for Leeds last season with his last appearance coming at Manchester City in the FA Cup in February.

Youngster Alex Cairns has been back-up goalkeeper to Paddy Kenny, who has played every minute so far this season.
