Leeds United travel today to take on League football newcomers Salford City in the League Cup. The club part-owned by former Manchester United’s “Class of 1992” has finally made it up the ladder all the way to the Football League and will play against such legendary clubs as Forest Green and Macclesfield Town.
In all seriousness, the tale of a small club that has made it up the ladder is in stark contrast to the sad tales of clubs such as Bolton Wanderers and Bury, who are teetering on the edge of extinction. Salford City’s status as a “project” of famous former footballers gives it a rather glamourous tint, but it’s still a small club that has achieved League status, something that would be otherwise celebrated.
Leeds will almost certainly play a “weakened” side with plenty of players that haven’t featured so far in the two league matches getting a chance to impress, along with a couple regular first-team players as well. This should be a victory for Leeds, but nothing is ever that simple with Leeds, now is it?
