    Jermaine Beckford is out with a hammy so Mike Grella gets his 1st ever league start.

    Go on Mikey! Get a goal son!

    YESSSS!!!! Mike Grella scores a curling shot into the bottom corner!! Leeds players all go mad celebrating his first league goal.

    That should shut the critics up that said he can't score.

    Yeah! I had a feeling when I saw that Leeds were 1-0 up that Mikey scored.

    Mike got in the way of Robert Snodgrass who was in a better position to score from a long throw in.

    Besides that though his touches seem to be on par with what we expect from him thus far.

    Mike restarts a FK too soon before his teammate was ready...

    Mike trying a bit too hard at the moment - let the game come to you Mikey.

    Nearly HT now -- Mike hasn't been as involved since his goal but Leeds are controlling things and the scoring doesn't seem to be over IMO.

    Just saw Grella's goal. Ball just sat for him with a bit of traffic in front of goal and it was a fantastic curling finish in the far corner.

    Just as well... my internet connection went out just as he was about to take it.

    According to Thom and Eddie it shouldn't have been a penalty in the first place.

    I don't know if it was mentioned or not, but Kisnorbo scored Australia's only goal in a 3-1 loss to South Korea.
