Leeds v Brighton match preview

Just past the half way point of the League One campaign, Leeds is facing a trying test for promotion. The quest for automatic promotion is long since forgotten as they are a full fourteen points behind second place MK Dons with twenty-two matches remaining. Therefore the true test is for Simon Grayson to rally the troops and steadily climb up the table and secure a playoff spot. It is far from a desired route but nonetheless the most likely after dumping so many points early in the campaign.

To climb from the tenth position of the table they will need to not only learn to win on the road and defeat teams lower than them but knock-off those above. This is not such an easy task given the clubs demonstration over the past twenty-four matches and it will require a number of tactical changes.

With this in-mind Simon Grayson has solidified the clubs defending on a temporary basis bringing in Richard Naylor and Carl Dickinson from Stoke City. Both will feature extensively as Leeds attempts to cure its woeful defending problems. Jermaine Beckford is questionable and Mr. Grayson eschewing to his prior statement of providing little info to the public, has done precisely that.

With that in-mind, enjoy the match as always I will report on it as it concluding. Until then we are Marching on Together.
