Grayson to assess walking wounded

27 December 2010 02:00
Leeds manager Simon Grayson may be forced to make changes when Portsmouth visit Elland Road on Tuesday. United, who slipped to third in the Championship following the 2-2 draw at Leicester on Boxing Day, picked up some "bumps and bruises" against the Foxes and Grayson could make full use of his squad for the second game in 48 hours. Striker Luciano Becchio left the Walkers Stadium pitch five minutes from time with an injury and he could be one of the players who is replaced. Defender Andy O`Brien made his return from a thigh strain against the Foxes and he could continue, although Alex Bruce, who was on the bench following a hamstring injury, could come back into contention. Grayson told the club`s official website: "There`s a quick turnaround and some will be available and some won`t. We`ll see where we are. It`s a great test of the squad but it`s a great squad."
