Marching on Together: Leicester City match preview

New, comment

Over 30,000 are expected at Elland Road for the Boxing Day clash between Leeds and Leicester City. The story of the match is unquestionably Simon Grayson taking over for Gary McAllister who was let go by Leeds after the club fell to its fourth successive loss. Leicester City is without a doubt the class of League One to-date, standing atop the table with a four point advantage. Since Leeds losing streak they have tumbled far down the table and now sit unceremoniously at ninth a full fifteen points behind.

For the match Leeds will possibly see the return of Jermaine Beckford and Andy Robinson and all eyes will be the approach that Simon Grayson will take. Leeds issue has been pace and aggression and seemingly concern "not to" lose as opposed to going out and "winning." The Foxes are fully-fit and will welcome Joe Mattock back from a ten-day absence.

For the match, Leeds must go on the attack and not be timid. The clubs undoing and Gary McAllister's reign has been a dowdy approach. To be successful against the Foxes who have lost only twice this campaign they must be bold, confident and aggressive.
