A Win On The Road
United players head for the tunnel after their away win. Seen here on the London Road pitch is Andy Keogh, Ross McCormack, Luciano Becchio and Ramon Nunez. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Peterborough United at London Road Stadium on the 22nd October, 2011. Both McCormack and Keogh started for Leeds with Keogh scoring United's first. And Becchio and Nunez both made second half substitute appearances for The Whites in the game against The Posh.

Andrew Keogh initially moved to Leeds at the age of sixteen. The player found it hard to break through into the first team and was loaned out to Scunthorpe United where he made 12 appearances and scored two goals for the Lincolnshire side. Manager Blackwell recalled Keogh due to an injury crisis when he made his debut for the Whites coming on as substitute in a 3rd Round League Cup tie against Portsmouth on the 26th October, 2004. For the rest of the season he showed only for the reserves before he was loaned out again to Bury. It was Manager Simon Grayson who gave the player his second spell at Leeds when on the 15th August, 2011 he was signed on loan with a view to a permanent move. After the move Keogh commented he had 'unfinished business' with The Whites and started his second spell in the Championship game against Hull City on the 16th August, 2011.

Manager Simon Grayson signed Scotland International Ross McCormack from Cardiff City on the 27th August, 2010 for an undisclosed fee. Ross made his debut for the Whites just a day later coming on as substitute in the 70th minute in the 1-0 away win at Watford. United's manager Grayson was delight with the capture of Ross saying: "Ross is a player of good quality.... He's proved in the Championship he can score goals and hopefully he will continue that with us."

The Argentinian Becchio was signed by Gary McAllister on the 31st July, 2008 for three years. He impressed the manager with his performances during the 2007-08 pre-season friendlies while on loan from Spanish outfit Merida Union Deportiva. With some stellar performances for Leeds since his arrival he has made the number 10 shirt his own and become a fans favourite.

Manager Simon Grayson initially brought Ramon Nunez to Elland Road on trial in August 2010. Nunez scored in his first outing for The Whites in a pre-season friendly against Bradford Park Avenue which prompted the manager to extend his trial period by one week. By the 31st August, 2010 Ramon had showed enough promise to gain him a professional contract, he signed for Leeds in a deal that reached up until January 2011 with an option to extend the contract further at the end. On the 1st January, 2011 despite not playing many games for The Whites manager Grayson revealed he might get a new contract. On the 13th January, 2011 Nunez got a new contract with Leeds that would last up until the end of season 2010-11 with an option of extending it for a further year at the end.

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