Anthony EldingAnthony Elding has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he hopes to have “planted a seed” in Gary McAllister’s mind ahead of Saturdays must win six-pointer at home to Walsall.

The stiker who joined Leeds from Stockport at the end of January is in good form, coming off the bench to net a consolation goal against Cheltenham last week, before netting twice against Sheffield Wednesday in a reserve fixture on Tuesday.

Elding – a childhood Leeds United fan – thinks McAllister thought he may be a little overwhelmed by his arrival at Elland Road and this has perhaps hindered his chances of making the starting line up so far “I feel he (McAllister) thought I was in awe of the club at the start, which I was – it’s fair to be said. But I’ve settled down a lot more now. I’m sure if I’m given a run over the course of the season, I’ll get some goals.”

With Jermaine Beckford unable to find the back of the net lately, the timing couldn’t be better for Elding. Jermaine still sits on top of the League Ones goal scorers, but has found the back of the net only once -from a penalty – in the last twelve fixtures. McAllister hasn’t been afraid to axe regulars in recent weeks either, with Tresor Kandol and Frazer Richardson finding themselves dropped after poor performances.

Meanwhile, Jonathan Douglas has said he’s delighted to be back in the mix after being sidelined with an injury for the past three month. He played the entire 90 minutes of Leeds’ reserve fixture on Tuesday, and now aims to play a part in the team as Leeds chase promotion to the Championship.
