Elland Road, March 5, 3pm
ATTACK is the best form of defence seems to be the philosophy of promotion chasing fallen giants Leeds.
Only Scunthorpe, Preston and Doncaster themselves have conceded more goals this season. But no one has scored more.
With the three–pronged attack of Becchio, Gradel and Snodgrass firing, Leeds look to have what it takes to challenge for back to back promotions.
But the leaky defence means it will only be through the play–offs.
MAX Gradel has gone from a regular substitute to one of the first names on the team sheet in what will go down as the Ivory Coast winger’s breakout year.
The former Leicester man’s lightning quick pace and tricky wing play have been tearing defences apart all season, ensuring Leeds have dual wide threat with Robert Snodgrass on the opposite flank.
This along with his newly found eye for goal and tireless work ethic is why 23-year-old Gradel is regarded as one of this season’s hottest talents.
