The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -


LEEDS UNITED cap­tain Liam Bridcutt says he had com­pleted just five days of train­ing be­fore be­ing thrown on against Read­ing in mid­week.

The 27-year-old mid­fielder missed 16 matches but was thrust into ac­tion when Chris Wood picked up an in­jury in the 30th minute.

“I’ve been fast-tracked back due to the in­juries and sus­pen­sions we have, I’ve only had five days of train­ing,” said Bridcutt.

“I’d been out ten weeks and now I have played over 70 min­utes. Things like that hap­pen in foot­ball and I am ready when called upon.

“We have a good med­i­cal team who have looked af­ter me re­ally well.”
