Match Preview

Leeds wait on Snodgrass Leeds will continue to monitor the fitness of winger Robert Snodgrass ahead of Sunday's home clash with Cardiff. Snodgrass sat out last weekend's win at Peterborough due to a back problem, but returned for the midweek defeat at Birmingham and played the full 90 minutes. Midfielder Mika Vayrynen made his league debut for the club at Peterborough and after dropping back to the substitutes' bench on Wednesday night was a 77th-minute replacement for Adam Clayton. Paul Rachubka will retain his place in goal as Andy Lonergan is sidelined with a fractured finger. Midfielder Lloyd Sam and striker Luciano Becchio are pressing their claims for a place in the starting line-up, but manager Simon Grayson, who has no new major injury or suspension problems, is not expected to make any unforced changes as his side look to bounce back from their first league defeat in eight matches. Cardiff are sweating on the fitness of Kenny Miller after the forward sustained a head injury in the 5-3 win over Barnsley last weekend. Miller required 20 stitches to a cut following a collision with team-mate Ben Turner and missed the Carling Cup fourth round victory over Burnley on Tuesday. With Rudy Gestede also ruled out for several weeks with a hamstring problem, manager Malky Mackay may turn his attention to young hot-shot Joe Mason, who bagged his second goal in as many games against the Clarets in midweek. And Mason is eager to prove himself in the npower Championship following his move from Plymouth in the summer. "It's important for me to be playing," he told Wales Online. "Ever since I came to Cardiff my main objective was to get in the starting team and by scoring goals, hopefully I will do that." The Bluebirds will also be without centre-back Anthony Gerrard, who serves a one-match ban after collecting five yellow cards this season.

Match Report

Snodgrass to the rescue for Leeds Robert Snodgrass' second goal of the season broke Cardiff's six-game winning run against Leeds but it was not enough to earn his side all three points from an entertaining 1-1 draw in the npower Championship at Elland Road. The Scotland winger touched in from close range with 18 minutes left to finally beat compatriot David Marshall, who had produced a string of excellent saves to preserve a lead given to his side by Joe Mason. The striker capitalised on a Darren O'Dea error to score his third goal in as many games with 17 minutes gone, and Marshall then took over as Cardiff looked set to continue a hoodoo they have held over Leeds since 2005. But, despite keeping out Snodgrass, Ross McCormack, Adam Clayton and Jonny Howson with some memorable stops, Marshall could do nothing when Snodgrass got free in the box to win his side a point that could have been more on another day. With the sides having scored 47 goals between them before kick-off, a high-octane start was always likely and so it proved. Much has been made of the high-profile errors made by Paul Rachubka since he replaced the injured Andy Lonergan in the Leeds goal a fortnight ago, but he proved his worth early on, getting down low to turn a goal-bound strike from Aron Gunnarsson around the post. Leeds then clicked into gear and Tom Lees had a header blocked in a busy box, before Andy Keogh - a former Cardiff loanee - worked Marshall with a header. But while both sides know their way to goal, they had also conceded a combined tally of 39 going into the game and that became 40 when Cardiff took the lead after a mistake from O'Dea. Although heading towards his own goal, the Republic of Ireland defender was winning a foot race with Mason all the way but hesitated over clearing the ball and, despite a suggestion he was given the slightest of shoves, he was promptly pick-pocketed by the lively 20-year-old who duly rounded Rachubka and slotted in. No strangers to having to come from behind Leeds quickly looked for a way back, with Snodgrass forcing Marshall to turn his header around the post as he followed up a Keogh flick, before Danny Pugh's volley was blocked behind. O'Dea was then withdrawn, capping a disastrous opening 30 minutes for the Celtic loanee, although there were suggestions as he left the pitch that he was struggling with his vision. The same could have been said of City defender Mark Hudson when he somehow failed to get on the end of Craig Conway's brilliant free-kick, although he did his job at his own end of the field as half-time approached, putting his body on the line to keep out what would surely have been Howson's first of the season. Snodgrass, always Leeds' greatest threat, looked to spark his side after the interval with a venomous 25-yarder that Marshall beat away, with the impressive keeper then going full stretch to keep out McCormack. The heroics continued to come from Marshall, with Clayton's 25-yard piledriver destined for the back of the net until he somehow got a touch to it, before, after another Clayton strike was blocked behind, he produced a stunning one-handed stop to keep out a Howson header. Eventually, though, Leeds found a way past him when Snodgrass levelled in the 72nd minute. Patrick Kisnorbo sent a free-kick into the box, Lees flicked it on and Snodgrass got a run on his marker to beat Marshall - who still got a hand on his prod - from two yards. The wave of home possession continued after the goal and Lees should have done better than glance a cross from substitute Lloyd Sam wide, before Cardiff created the final chance of the game, with Aidy White clearing from under his own bar as Gunnarsson looked to pounce. end
