Andrew Signs

Description: Andrew Hughes here the United midfielder signs his name for a fan before the League One game with Colchester United at the Weston Homes Community Stadium on the 29th August, 2009. Hughes featured for the full ninety minutes in the game with the U's.

Andrew Hughes was signed by Dennis Wise on the 9th August, 2009 for an undisclosed fee. Hughes's natural position is on the right side of midfield although his versatility allows him to be comfortable across all the midfield, Hughes has also sufficiently filled both full back positions. Popular with the fans Hughes is not scared of a challenge and has the ability to rally the team on. "...Dennis Wise told me the challenge and the position the club was in. He wants fighters and I felt the challenge of playing for Leeds United..."

United were looking to make it seven straight wins in a row at the Weston Homes Community Stadium which if achieved would equal the record set by Don Revie's men at the start of the 1973-74 season. Luciano Becchio returned for the Whites and it was Leeds who had the best of the first half with Jermaine Beckford netting for Leeds twice only to be denied both times by the linesman's flag. It was just 90 seconds into the second half when United finally broke the deadlock with Bradley Johnson heading home from a Robert Snodgrass free-kick. This pushed the home side out and Colchester came close to the equaliser almost immediately but United goalkeeper Shane Higgs made a terrific save to keep the advantage safe. Ten minutes later, after Rui Marques was adjudged to have made a foul on a Colchester striker, the U's equalised from the spot. United kept their cool in a high tension game and it was Jermaine Beckford who fired United back into the lead with a shot from within the box. United kept it tight at the back for the remainder of the game landing three points for the Whites on their travels and handing Simon Grayson's men a place in the history books as they achieved the seven game record which had stood for over 35 years. 8,810 supporter's were at the Weston Homes for the match with a large contingent for the men in yellow with the travelling United Army taking over just under two stands in the ground.

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