Paddy's Back
Patrick Kisnorbo United's Australian International here makes his first appearance for Leeds United since March 2010. The shot coming from the last Football League Championship game of the season at Loftus Road against Queens Park Rangers on the 7th May, 2011. Patrick replaced Richard Naylor on 79 minutes.

Defender Kisnorbo was signed by Simon Grayson on the 22nd July, 2009 in a two year deal coming from Leicester City. Kisnorbo turned down a host of Championship clubs who were also after his signature to join the Whites. 'Paddy' made his debut for United in the 2009-10 season opener against Exeter City at Elland Road where he picked up a head wound that required 12 stitches. United won the game 2-1 and Kisnorbo stayed on the park througout. On 12th August, 2009 Kisnorbo brought Leeds United Football Club another landmark, his 15th appearance for Australia in the game against the Republic of Ireland made Patrick Leeds United's 100th full international player. Kisnorbo also picked up a couple of stitches above his right brow in the game with Ireland for his efforts. His bravery and strong performances soon made Kisnorbo a favourite with the Elland Road faithful. During the season 2009-10 Patrick suffered an Achilles injury which kept him out of the last nine games for United including the final game decider against Bristol Rovers. The injury also kept him from travelling to the World Cup to represent Australia. Despite the injury Patrick was named as the fans Leeds United Player Of The Season and also the Players Player Of The Season for 2009-10.

Leeds United: Schmeichel, Connolly, O'Brien, Naylor, Lichaj, Gradel, Howson, Kilkenny, Johnson, Paynter, McCormack.
Subs: Somma for Paynter, Kisnorbo for Naylor, Watt for Gradel.
