Snoddy selected for Scotland

Robert Snodgrass has been called up to the Scotland squad for their October the 10th friendly against Japan. As great as it is to see Snoddy’s talent recognised, it’s not the greatest news for Leeds United as the tie will rule him out of the Bristol Rovers clash.

Update: It’s since been announced that the Bristol Rovers game will be postponed due to several international call-ups from the Leeds United squad.

Charlton’s confidence builds

Charlton’s confidence is building ahead of our top of the table clash this weekend. The South London Press has picked up on our growing injury list and with the likes of Snodgrass, Higgs, Parker, Bromby, Marques and Crowe all ruled out, Charlton will be confident of getting a result at Elland Road. Simon Grayson does have a decent size squad though and the fringe players will have to be at their best.

Oldham winger set for Leeds?

Leeds are being linked with a move for Oldham winger, Chris Taylor. The highly rated winger is out of contract at the end of the season and could be part of a part-exchange deal with Alan Sheehan heading in the opposite direction.

The 22-year-old came through the ranks at Oldham and has since made 150 appearences scoring 19 goals. This isn’t the first time Leeds have been linked with the winger. On the 8th of June, there was reports of a £500,000 deal but nothing ever transpired.

    Not sure I agree with that, imagine the message it sends if we took points from Bristol with so many away…

      That’s good news for me. We looked tired against Carlisle and the team looked out of sorts with the mounting injuries so a break in play should help us a bit.

      …. and imagine how stupid we’d look if we played the game and lost ……!

    According to the ‘official’ site only Higgs is definitely ruled out and the others are training.
