Becchio's Time

Becchios Time

Submitted: 08/26/09
Description: Luciano Becchio here captured in this superb shot signalling to the packed United end at Adams Park. Luciano had just netted the only goal of the game against Wycombe Wanderers giving Leeds United their third straight win of the season.

The Argentinian Becchio was signed by Gary McAllister on the 31st July, 2008 on a three year contract. He impressed the manager with his performances during the 2007-08 pre-season friendlies while on loan from Spanish outfit Merida Union Deportiva. He has since made the number 10 shirt his own.

United were playing freshly promoted Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park. Jermaine Beckford made a welcome return after a knee injury and Andrew Hughes started in place of the injured Ben Parker. This would be United's first ever professional clash against Wycombe and it was Leeds who came close to scoring first with an effort from Jermaine Beckford in the first quarter but the strike went inches wide. Leeds were the dominant side throughout the first 45mins but the two sides went in all square at half time. United again started the second half looking the most threatening and it wasn't long before Leeds broke the deadlock, on the 61st minute Luciano Becchio struck a first time effort from outside the box which left the Wycombe goalkeeper with no chance and sent the United faithful behind the goal into raptures. Leeds looked comfortable for the rest of the game and coasted the lead to the 90th minute mark making it 3 points for Grayson's men and the third straight win of the season for United. 8,400 were at Adams Park for the match with the United following packing two sides of the ground.

Leeds United: Higgs, Crowe, Marques, Kisnorbo, Hughes, Snodgrass, Howson, Doyle, Johnson, Beckford, Becchio.
Subs: Prutton for Snodgrass, Showunmi for Becchio.
