Match Preview

Bannan could make Leeds line-up Leeds' latest signing Barry Bannan could make his first start for the club against Ipswich. Scotland international Bannan made his debut off the substitutes' bench in the midweek win at Preston and is hoping to be included in manager Simon Grayson's starting line-up. Grayson must decide whether to retain Billy Paynter up front or recall Argentinian Luciano Becchio. Paynter made a rare start for Leeds on Tuesday and struck his first goal for the club, while fellow forwards Davide Somma, Ross McCormack and Sanchez Watt are all pushing for recalls. Right-back Paul Connolly is close to a return after missing the last six games due to a hamstring injury, but Eric Lichaj is expected to start in his last match for Leeds before he is scheduled to return to parent club Aston Villa. Grayson has no new injury or suspension problems as Leeds look to make up further ground on the second automatic promotion spot. Ipswich will be without captain David Norris for the trip. Midfielder Norris - who has just returned from an ankle injury - collected his 10th yellow card of the season against Reading in midweek and starts a two-game suspension. Manager Paul Jewell could have a ready-made replacement available in Jimmy Bullard if the on-loan Hull man returns from a hamstring injury. Mark Kennedy - who can play in midfield or at left-back - suffered a hamstring in the 2-0 win at his former club Cardiff last Saturday and will be out for several weeks so Darren O`Dea will continue at full-back. Goalkeeper Brian Murphy has stepped up his comeback from a broken ankle after coming out of plaster but Marton Fulop will continue. Promising forward Ronan Murray has joined League Two side Torquay on loan until the end of the season.

Match Report

Leeds held to draw Leeds' automatic promotion hopes were dealt a blow as poor finishing cost them all three points in their goalless draw with Ipswich. The hosts had an opportunity to move level on points with second-placed Swansea in the npower Championship but their profligacy in front of goal cost them dearly. In fairness, the Ipswich defence held firm in spite of a Leeds onslaught in the second-half to grab a point. But Max Gradel, Jonny Howson, Robert Snodgrass, Billy Paynter and Andy O'Brien all had chances - but no one in a white shirt could find the back of the net. It was not all doom and gloom for Leeds as they did close the gap on Swansea to two points - but they will know they missed an opportunity. The main talking point before the game centred on Kieron Dyer's debut in his second spell with the Tractor Boys. The midfielder rejoined his former club on a one-month loan deal yesterday from West Ham. Dyer was immediately put into action along with Jimmy Bullard and Tamas Priskin, as Ipswich looked to bounce back from a 3-1 defeat to Reading. The visitors' recent form has been poor, with three defeats in their last four matches. However they more than held their own in the opening minutes. Gradel nearly opened the scoring for an unchanged Leeds outfit against the run of play but his 25-yard strike was tipped round the post by Ipswich goalkeeper Marton Fulop. At the other end, Kasper Schmeichel did well to ensure the score remained goalless. He made a fine save from Lee Martin's drive from just outside the area. From the resulting Jimmy Bullard corner, Gareth McAuley's downward header bounced off the ground and was helped over the bar by Schmeichel. That served as a wake-up call for the hosts. The dangerous Gradel cut in from the left and his curling shot was just wide of the right-hand post. However, Leeds were aggrieved at a series of decisions that went against them and there was a chorus of boos at the half-time whistle. Howson and Snodgrass missed the target as Simon Grayson's men improved after the interval. Leeds have the best attacking record in the npower Championship, having scored 69 goals this season, so it seemed just a matter of time before they broke the deadlock. Paynter, who was preferred to Luciano Becchio in attack, tested Fulop and Andy O'Brien went close with a 20-yard drive that just sailed wide of the left-hand post. Though Leeds continued to completely control the tempo of the game, chances were few and far between from then on and the points were shared.
