Elokobi Set To Make Debut vs Leeds

Elokobi Set To Make Debut vs Leeds

City get set to take on Leeds United on Saturday and new recruit George Elokobi is set to make his debut.

The full-back made a three-month loan switch from fellow npower Championship side Wolves on Wednesday as City manager Derek McInnes tries to do something about strengthening his defence.

The City boss faced more trouble when Greg Cunningham was ruled out for two months with a serious ankle problem and Elokobi was brought in as a replacement.

Teenager Joe Bryan deputised in the 2-2 draw with Watford last weekend but McInnes was keen to bring in a more experienced option.

Cole Skuse is the only other player that McInnes has problems with, he is still injured.

The Robins boss revealed other members of his squad had one or two knocks to contend with, but no more will be ruled out of the game.
