Friday Leeds United news round up Tim Hodge May 6, 2011 Leeds United 5 Comments It feels like an age since Saturday’s win over Burnley but we’re now approaching our final game of the season. Here’s the news from this last week of the season. The FA have delayed their decision on QPR’s Alejandro Faurlin case apparently because of the quantity of evidence being considered. Instead of releasing their verdict on Friday, the day before Leeds’ game against the league leaders, the FA will now release it after the final game of the season, though no date has been set. This means any points penalty would only be applied after QPR had celebrated receiving the Championship trophy on Saturday. Leeds United and Burnley have been charged by the FA for “failing to ensure that their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.” This follows a melee that broke out following a high challenge by Burnley’s Chris McCann on Max Gradel. McCann was booked following the incident as were Leeds players Eric Lichaj and Neil Kilkenny. There were five other yellow cards in the game. Both clubs have until 4pm on Friday 6th May to appeal. Striker Luciano Becchio is set to undergo hamstring surgery next week. Becchio hasn’t played since his brief substitute appearance against Watford last month. In the unlikely event we should make the play-offs, his surgery will be delayed allowing him to take part, otherwise he will be back in time for pre-season. Patrick Kisnorbo has returned to training recently and could be in contention for the squad to travel to QPR. Simon Grayson has confirmed he wants to keep Kisnorbo and that the Australian defender wants to stay. Grayson will be offering him a short term deal to check he has recovered 100%. The manager has countered George McCartney’s claims that the squad have been tired going into the last few games, considering the dip in form to be a mental thing rather than physical. Grayson has also commented on the future of youngsters Tom Lees and Aidy White. He has refused to dismiss their chances for the first team but says there are clubs interested in taking them on loan next season. He has also praised Jonny Howson on making the provisional squad for England’s U21 European Championship campaign. Finally, Leeds are the best supported team in the Football League this season with the highest average attendance (27,299) and the highest overall attendance (33,622 vs Sheffield United). The lowest attendance was 20,747 (higher than twelve Championship clubs highest gates) for the televised Monday night match against Cardiff City. We recorded higher average gates than nine Premier League clubs while thirteen Championship clubs have recorded their highest gates of the season against us. We’re not famous anymore!
