Grayson Praises Becchio

Grayson Praises Becchio

Leeds United manager Simon Grayson was full of praise for hat-trick hero Luciano Becchio, who got his goals in the last half hour of the game after coming on as a sub.

Becchio entered the Elland Road fray on the hour mark, soon after that he had three goals to his name while all that City had to show was a goal from Jonathan Stead.

Grayson said: "He has been battered from pillar to post in the last few games playing as a lone striker so I felt he needed a breather and started him on the bench.

"We certainly reaped the rewards of sending him on just after the hour. He was there in the right place at the right time and fully deserved his hat-trick because he has worked ever so hard since he has been here. They were two great headers and a clinical finish.

"We did OK for an hour or so, passing the ball around without any real spark in and around the 18-yard box, but we felt if we kept doing the right things the opportunities would come along and that was proved right by Luciano's goals."

I can't understand why you didn't have more of a go at us. We have been leaking goals all season and when you had to get back into the game you soon did. Couldn't honestly see a goal in the game until the subs.
