LEEDS PREVIEW

4 March 2015

Luke Varney looking forward to Elland Road return with the Blues this evening

Luke Varney is looking forward to going back to Elland Road tonight to play in front of some of the most passionate supporters in the country.

The Town striker, on loan from Blackburn, spent two years at Leeds before joining Rovers and though he admits to having good times and not so good at the club, he has nothing but respect for the Whites and their fans.


“It’s a massive club, Leeds, one of the real sleeping giants of the game,” Luke told the Club website.

“They’ve had their time at the top and that’s probably one of the problems, they are desperate to get back there so you don’t get much time to settle in.

“I had some good times at the club and some tough periods as well but I don’t regret my time there one bit. When you have 28,000 passionate fans behind you, it is an amazing place to play football.

“I’m looking forward to going back there and seeing some of the staff that were there when I was there. There are a lot of good people at the club.”

Team news

Town are again without the injured trio of David McGoldrick, Luke Hyam and Noel Hunt, with the latter unable to face his former side. Kundai Benyu, who was named on the bench against Norwich last time out, is again named in the travelling squad.

Steve Morison is back in training and could make his return to action against Town this evening, although Billy Sharp has performed well in his absence. Rodolph Austin misses out through injury, although Guiseppe Bellusci is back again after serving a suspension.

Where they currently stand

Leeds- 16th
Town- 7th

Last time we met


Town breezed past the Whites at Portman Road back in December, winning the game 4-1 despite going behind to an early Mirco Antenucci strike. However, a brace from Daryl Murphy either side of a David McGoldrick penalty saw Blues ahead at the break, before Christophe Berra sealed the win with a fourth goal early in the second-half- despite Tommy Smith trying to claim it!
