Marching on Together: Hereford match preview

Leeds welcomes bottom-of-the-table Hereford to Elland in a match they must win to maintain pressure at the top of the table. Seven matches into the campaign the table is taking shape and Gary McAllister must push the club on for maximum points with every chance. It's time to show a killer instinct and attack Hereford without end.

Based upon prior week's lineup and Casper Ankergren's return to health I expect the following lineup:

Casper Ankergren
Frazer Richardson, Paul Telfer, Rui Marques, Lubo Michalik/Aidan White
Andy Hughes/Robert Snodgrass, Neil Kilkenny/Jonny Howson, Jonathan Douglas, Fabian Delph,
Jermaine Beckford, Luciano Becchio

This is one of those "must-win" matches where Leeds must gain full points and stay abreast of Oldham and the top of the table. Gary McAllister's squad is fully healthy with only Alan Sheehan out, serving the match match of his suspension.

I will report on the match on Monday morning. I apologize for the delay but I am off to my own matches and will likely be unable to properly review and post till that that. I thank you for your patience in this. Until then, We’re Marching On Together.
