Leeds striker recovering after being knocked unconscious

Leeds striker Luciano Becchio is on the mend after being knocked unconscious and swallowing his tongue in the weekend defeat at Norwich. The 26-year-old Argentinian, stretchered off the field after being kicked accidentally in the side of the head by Norwich defender Michael Nelson in the 11th minute, was later released from hospital in Norwich.

Leeds boss Simon Grayson said: "He travelled back with us and he's recovering well. We are monitoring his progress. The physios and the doctors were terrific with their response."
