Take It Away Danny

Take It Away Danny

Description: Danny Pugh here United's Midfielder takes the ball away from unwanted feet during the action on the Elland Road pitch. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Cardiff City at Elland Road on the 30th October, 2011. Pugh started the game against the Welshmen for Leeds but was replaced on 78 minutes by Lloyd Sam.

Danny Pugh originally joined Leeds in 2004 when Kevin Blackwell was the manager at Elland Road. The player came to Leeds in a part exchange deal which saw Alan Smith move to the wrong side of The Pennines in a controversial move. A good start for The Whites saw Pugh hold down the Left Midfield position but with Blackwell re-building Pugh's position was lost and he soon found himself on the bench. The player only made five appearances for Leeds in his last six month before he was sold to Preston North End in 2006.
Second time around for Pugh at Elland Road and it was manager Simon Grayson who brought the player in on a three month loan with the option to a permanent move on 22 September, 2011 from Stoke City. After an injury to club captain Jonathan Howson Pugh moved into the Central Midfield position and the Club made his move permanent when he put pen to paper in a two and a half year contract which he penned on the 2nd January, 2012.

Leeds United: Rachubka, Connolly, Lees, O'Dea, White, Snodgrass, Howson, Clayton, Pugh, McCormack, Keogh.
Subs: Kisnorbo for Lees, Becchio for Keogh, Sam for Pugh.
