Attack At Turf
United on the attack here in their last pre-season game of the summer a week before United kick off the 2009-10 season for real. United were playing Burnley in their final pre-season game of the summer on August 1st, 2009 at Turf Moor. Burnley freshly promoted to the Premier League faced a Leeds United without Luciano Becchio and Fabian Delph who both were reported to have picked up knocks in training. It was United's American striker Mike Grella who opened the scoring just after the half hour mark putting Leeds deservedly in the lead as United dominated play in the first half. It wasn't until the second half when Burnley finally had a shot on goal but it was United who continued to boss the game and on 70 minutes midfielder Andy Robinson who had only been on the field 7 minutes netted Leeds' second. That second goal for Leeds prompted the Burnley manager to ring the changes and on 76 minutes Burnley scored against the run of play. Robinson was unlucky not to get his second, United's third soon after but was beaten by the linesman's flag. 7,899 watched United win away, with a Mighty White following for the men in yellow.

Leeds United: Ankergren, Crowe, Marques, Kisnorbo, Parker, Hughes, Howson, Prutton, Johnson, Showunmi, Grella.
Subs: Michalik for Marques, Snodgrass for Crowe, Huntington for Kisnorbo, Robinson for Johnson, White for Parker, Sheehan for Showunmi.
