Description: Andrew Hughes walks back into position after the ball goes out of play in the game with Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park on August 15th, 2009. Hughes was brought in as a replacement for the injured Ben Parker and played the full ninety minutes in the United win.

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 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.
