News Bites - 21st April 2011
Most of the news is understandably leaning towards tomorrow night's game at Elland Road - Peter Beagrie (for Sky Sports) says he thought McDermott should have won March's Manager of the Month whilst previewing the game, whilst Neil Johnston (Fanhouse) reckons the pressure is on Simon Grayson's side (there's a short interview with Ian Harte too). Sporting Life, meanwhile, are reporting that Leeds striker Luciano Becchio is doubtful for the match.
A few interviews with Brian McDermott today too:
