Hold The Line

Hold The Line

Submitted: 12/06/10
Description: Alex Bruce, Bradley Johnson and Neill Collins hold the line here for United in the Championship game against Sheffield United at Elland Road on the 25th September, 2010. All three players featured here started the game for Leeds and all played the full ninety minutes, while Midfielder Bradley Johnson (middle) scored the only goal of the game on 84 minutes.

After being a long time target for Simon Grayson the United manager finally signed Alex Bruce from Ipswich Town for an undisclosed fee on the 30th July, 2010 on a two year deal, with the option for a further year. Alex's impressive debut came in the Championship game against Doncaster Rovers on the 17th September, 2010 in the season 2010-11.
Manager Grayson.... "Alex is going to be a good member of the squad. He can play at centre-back, right-back, and as a holding midfielder... We felt we were short in those areas at this moment and we're delighted he's come... He's got a lot of experience, he's played in the Championship and the Premiership and he's what we want - a player who knows the division, is hungry and wants to be successful."

Dennis Wise signed Bradley Johnson from Northampton Town on the 8th January, 2008 in a three year deal for a fee of 250,000 pounds. Johnson found it hard to find his place under new manager Gary McAllister and had a two month loan spell with Brighton and Hove Albion during the 2008-09 season which ended on 3rd January, 2009 Johnson scored 4 goals in 10 games for Brighton. Johnson returned to Leeds and has since established himself as one of Grayson's first choices for one of United's midfield spots.

Manager Simon Grayson brought Neill Collins to Leeds on loan in March, 2010 for the rest of the 2009-10 season. Coming from Preston North End Neill was an important fixture in United's push for promotion to the Championship. After playing that instrumental part in United's automatic promotion to the Championship Neill was signed up for a three year deal on the 7th July, 2010 for an undisclosed fee.

Leeds United: Higgs, Hughes, Bruce, Collins, McCartney, Gradel, Howson, Johnson, Sam, Becchio, Somma.
Subs: Snodgrass for Sam, Kilkenny for Gradel, McCormack for Somma.
