Leeds boss confident of survival in Championship

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson is unconcerned about his side's ability to make the step up to the Championship next season. Grayson has drafted in goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, right-back Paul Connolly, left-back Federico Bessone and striker Billy Paynter so far this summer and is confident Leeds can make an impact after three seasons in League One.

Grayson said: "We're an established club in terms of size and facilities and I genuinely believe we have a good group who can make the step up.

"They showed their capability at times last season and I believe we can compete against clubs who have been in the Championship for a few seasons.

"We have to improve in certain areas of the pitch, but we'll go into the season in a strong state of mind and be as ready and prepared as we can be.

"We're not frightened of this division and we respect the teams in the league, but we're looking forward to having a successful time."
