Whites striker wins fans' award

The 25-year-old is the second successive Leeds players to scoop the accolade following the success of Robert Snodgrass in September.

Beckford has scored 11 goals in 14 league matches this season and last month fired a late winner against Norwich, grabbed two in the 4-0 win at Bristol Rovers and another on Saturday in the home victory over Yeovil.

Meanwhile, Leeds' league clash with Swindon on November 14 is under threat with up to seven of United's first-team players possibly away on international duty.

Robert Snodgrass (Scotland), on-loan Sam Vokes (Wales), Patrick Kisnorbo (Australia), Rui Marques (Angola), Bradley Johnson (USA), Lubo Michalik (Slovakia) and goalkeeper Alan Martin (Scotland Under-21s) could all earn call-ups for their respective countries.

Leeds' league clash at Bristol Rovers, originally scheduled for October 10, was postponed for similar reasons and replayed last week.
