Naylor absent for Leeds

26 November 2010 09:30
Skipper Richard Naylor has had minor knee surgery and will be out for a further six weeks but Leeds have no other new injury or suspension problems for the clash at Reading. Other than Naylor and fellow centre-half Patrick Kisnorbo (knee), manager Simon Grayson has a full-strength squad to choose from. Grayson is not expected to make too many changes as his side have gone five league games unbeaten. Billy Paynter, Ross McCormack and Davide Somma, all substitutes last week, may have to be patient and wait on the bench for their chance as Grayson retains Luciano Becchio up front with Max Gradel and Robert Snodgrass on either wing. Leeds are chasing a fifth away win in the Championship as they look to consolidate in the top six.
