Description: George McCartney United's loanee Defender and Danish number one Kasper Schmeichel here caught before a corner for the opposition in front of the Kop End at Elland Road. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Nottingham Forest at Elland Road on the 2nd April, 2011. Both George and Kasper played the full ninety minutes for Leeds in the game against the East Midlands outfit.

Simon Grayson the United manager initially brought in George McCartney on a months loan from Sunderland on the 23rd September, 2010. On the 4th October it was announced that the loan deal would be extended for two days so he could play in the Championship game against Cardiff City. His loan deal was again extended on the 30th October for another month and further extended for a third time on the 1st December. McCartney returned to Sunderland on the 30th December but on the 14th January, 2011 during the transfer window United re-signed McCartney in a loan deal that would keep the player at Elland Road for the remainder of the 2010-11 season.

Kasper Schmeichel was manager Simon Grayson's first signing of the Summer of 2010 after United were promoted to the Championship. Leeds' manager Grayson beat off a host of other clubs to the Danish keeper's signature after he had kept 24 clean sheets for his former club Notts County and won the PFA League Two Player of the Year in the bargain. Schmeichel joined Leeds on a free transfer on the 1st July, 2010 in a contract that will last two years. He was handed the number One shirt for the 2010-11 season opener just edging out Shane Higgs who showed some good form in United's pre-season campaign.

Leeds United: Schmeichel, Lichaj, O'Brien, Bromby, McCartney, Johnson, Howson, Snodgrass, Bannan, Gradel, Becchio.
Subs: Livermore for Bannan, Kilkenny for Johnson, Somma for Becchio.
