Leeds Utd Confirmed XI: First Team Return For Sharp

Leeds United have confirmed their starting eleven for the game against Nottingham Forest on their official Twitter account.

The Whites travel to Forest having lost against Fulham in the Championship in their last game.

Since then, manager Neil Redfearn has been talking about rejigging the first team, although there are not necessarily many options available to him to change things.

There is no natural width in the side, as the situation has been since the departures of Max Gradel and Robert Snodgrass over two seasons ago.

Unsurprisingly, Leeds top scorer Mirco Antenucci retains his place in the first team for the game.

The newly bleach blonde Marco Silvestri continues in net, having been ever present since the start of the season.

Stephen Warnock starts despite having picked up a knock in the game against Fulham, which Leeds lost 1-0.

Sam Byram also plays, and will hope to continue his recent good form in the league.

Billy Sharp also starts for the first time in an extended period.

Leeds Utd’s 2-Goal Hero Couldn’t Pass Up His Whites Move

Leeds United striker Mirco Antenucci has revealed that he could not pass up the opportunity to join the Whites in the summer, as reported in an interview with Tuttomercato.

He said: “Leeds was an opportunity that only comes once.”

Antenucci has settled quickly at Elland Road, scoring two goals in only five appearances for the Yorkshire club.

His arrival from Ternana towards the end of the window came after a great season with the Serie B side.

Antenucci scored 19 goals in 40 games for Ternana, despite the fact that they were one of the weaker sides in the division.

Without his incredible rate in front of the net, they would have likely not avoided relegation, which they did by finishing 16th.

He was eventually appointed captain of the club, but shortly after Ternana made his move permanent, Leeds swooped.

An inauspicious pair of games against Watford and Birmingham City was later followed by important goals in the clashes against Bournemouth and Huddersfield Town, both of which Leeds won.

30-Year-Old Leeds Goalscoring Sensation: The Team Comes First

Leeds United’s goalscoring sensation Mirco Antenucci has said that he was delighted to score yesterday, but that it is more important that the team does well, as said in an interview by Adam Pope on BBC Radio Leeds following the match yesterday.

Antenucci scored his second goal in a week against local rivals Huddersfield Town, as the Whites romped to a 3-0 win in the West Yorkshire derby.

This followed a great display against Bournemouth in mid week, which saw Antenucci wrap up the victory by finishing well from a well worked counter attack.

However, Antenucci was quick to point out that while scoring is good, it is more important that the team does well.

He said: “I am very happy for the win today.

“It’s important to score, but it’s very important for the team.

“First the team, and if I score, I am happy.”

Leeds are expected to appoint Serbian manager Darko Milanic today as head coach.

This comes after caretaker boss Neil Redfearn led the club exceptionally during his four games in charge. The Elland Road club emerged from his spell in charge undefeated, with three wins in four games.
