Another Striker Bites the Dust!

13th February 2006 :: by Querpo

Kevin Blackwell has accumulated a nice stable of strikers at Elland Road, but he rarely gets to play his first choice because of injuries. Today came news of another set back. This time Richard Cresswell is crocked - again. He has already been sidelined for 3 months this season with ruptured knee ligaments. He picked up a knee injury in training on Friday which prevented him playing against Derby County on Saturday. The resulting 0-0 draw would suggest that the in-form Cresswell is desperately needed. This year he has netted four times in five Coca-Cola Championship games.

"Unfortunately Richard's picked up a niggle in his knee," Blackwell told the club's official website. Indicating that although a knee injury it is not as serious as the one he suffered early in the season.

"Once the scan came through I knew he couldn't play at the weekend. We are going to monitor it and try and nurse him through a couple of games but it will need surgery.

"It happened in training, it appeared innocuous but it was serious enough to keep him out.

"He might be involved on Tuesday and then go for an operation on Wednesday, at the moment we are still assessing the situation."

The fact that Blackwell is prepared to risk Cresswell on Tuesday is testament to the striker's form and to the threat poised by Watford to our promotion chances. Watford, led by ex-Leeds man Ade Boothroyd, and featuring ex-Leeds players such as Clark Carlisle and Matty Spring have recently beaten Sheff United, away, 4-1 and have taken a firm grip on 3rd place in the Championship. As the Blades have begun their predicted stutter it is Watford who have risen to challenge for the second automatic promotion place not Leeds. Tuesday is Leeds United's only chance of undermining Watford's current dominant league positon directly.
