What's he gonna do next?

Aidy Boothroyd, the Coventry City manager and former first team coach at Elland Road has admitted he has no idea what to expect ahead of Leeds United’s visit this weekend, warning Coventry fans that Leeds have a very good record on their travels so far this season.

When he was asked what he expected from Leeds, Bothroyd said;

“I am not quite sure really. They are a very good team away from home, they have got players who can score goals and a solid record and winning mentality and fabulous backing, so on their day they are as good as anyone in the league. But so are we and I think it is going to be a terrific match and I am really looking forward to it.”

“They have conceded a lot this season but it is a different league and new experience for them. I know Simon Grayson has been there before and Leeds have been there before but a lot of their players are gelling because it is a team that has changed a bit. And when you lose a player like Jermaine Beckford things do change.”

Bothroyd’s first hand experience at Elland Road will perhaps give him an advantage over other managers in the league when playing Leeds, and the Coventry boss was quick to pick out strengths in last weekends hattrick hero, Jonathan Howson who he describes as “a class act” and Argentinian striker, Luciano Becchio.

Bothroyd’s first hand knowledge only goes so far however, and he was quick to point out that the squad has changed considerably since his departure.

Whether Leeds will head in to the game intent on attacking from the off, or with a more defensive strategy to try and curb the goal difference deficit is anyones guess.

Trying to predict which Leeds United team we’ll see for each game has been pretty much impossible this season, but maybe our inconsistency has become our biggest threat? When a team goes from abject failure to free-scoring winners on a week-by-week basis, the opposing managers must have a nightmare setting the game-plan?

I think I’ve just figured out the Grayson master-plan! (Evil laugh)
