Match Preview

Somma in contention for Whites Leeds striker Davide Somma returns to contention following suspension for the home clash with Millwall. Somma, yet to make a league appearance for Leeds, has completed a three-game ban after being sent off while playing for Lincoln at the end of last season and gives manager Simon Grayson another option up front. Summer signing Billy Paynter, sidelined with a shin injury, is still waiting to make his competitive debut and Robert Snodgrass has yet to return to full fitness following a knee injury. Grayson, who has opted to play Luciano Becchio on his own up front in Leeds' first two league matches, could hand a substitute's role to Somma, who scored nine goals in 14 appearances on loan at Lincoln last season. Fellow forward Mike Grella stepped up his bid for a place in Grayson's starting line-up with two goals for the reserves against Gateshead in midweek while Aidy White was also on the scoresheet. Defenders Ben Parker (Achilles) and Patrick Kisnorbo (knee) remain Grayson's only long-term absentees. Scott Barron is an injury doubt for Millwall. The defender is rated 50-50 by manager Kenny Jackett after picking up an ankle knock. With Tony Craig still recovering from his fractured metatarsal, Jack Smith or summer signing Tamika Mkandawire will step in at Elland Road if Barron is ruled out. Midfielder Darren Carter has extended his loan spell from Preston until January but is set to be named on the bench again with Jimmy Abdou and Liam Trotter starting in the centre. Striker Shaun Batt is a long-term absentee with a knee injury. The Lions are sitting proudly at the top of the early Championship table with two wins out of two.

Match Report

Somma double tames Lions Substitute Davide Somma thrilled Elland Road with a brilliant late double to hand Leeds their first win in the Championship since April 2007 as they beat Millwall 3-1. Millwall forged ahead in the 15th minute when home captain Richard Naylor scored an own goal in front of a stunned Kop. Yet Simon Grayson's men responded in style and Lloyd Sam drew them level in the 32nd minute before Somma struck twice in clinical fashion late on to seal a win that was no more than Leeds deserved. The woodwork saved Millwall on three occasions but Somma stuck within four minutes of his arrival and netted again in added time to rock the visitors. Kenny Jackett's men arrived as league leaders after impressive 3-0 and 4-0 wins over Bristol City and Hull, but Leeds offered the greater goal threat for much of the game and nobody impressed more than Sanchez Watt. The on-loan Arsenal winger, 19, was pivotal throughout and had already had three attempts on goal by the time Millwall hit Leeds with a sucker-punch. Steve Morison's high cross from the right was hopeful at best but Naylor, under minimal pressure from Kevin Lisbie, headed the ball straight into the top corner past Kasper Schmeichel. Yet Leeds fashioned an impressive response, with Watt and homegrown midfielder Jonathan Howson at the heart of their best moves. In the 23rd minute, Howson teed up Luciano Becchio for a shooting chance from 10 yards but the Argentinian could only blaze wildly over the crossbar. Three minutes later Howson burst into the box and showed some delightful footwork to engineer the space to rifle a low shot against the outside of a post as Millwall survived. The Lions' goal began to lead a charmed existence and after Sam had a shot cleared off the line in he 27th minute, he drew Leeds level five minutes later. Watt drifted across the face of Millwall's penalty box before finding Becchio. He kept the move flowing with a neat touch into the path of Sam, who struck a fierce low right-footed shot past Forde and into the bottom right-hand corner. The goal poured confidence into Leeds and they could have been comfortably ahead by half-time. Defender Neil Collins headed wide when he should have hit the target, Watt shot weakly wide at Forde when well placed, and Forde then produced a fine save to tip Howson's 20-yard strike around a post. From the resultant corner by Neil Kilkenny, Collins headed the ball against a post as Millwall were again rescued by the woodwork. Millwall improved vastly after the break but genuine chances were scarce for both teams. Leeds always looked the more likely to claim maximum points and so it proved as Somma struck with 11 minutes remaining. More intelligent play by Watt saw him drive a low cross across the face of goal and Somma was perfectly placed to smash the ball into the net from 10 yards. Schmeichel then produced a fine stop at the other end to preserve Leeds' advantage before Somma reclaimed centre stage in added time. Somma showed brilliant footwork to engineer the space to hit a superb left-footed shot past Forde from 12 yards.
