Leeds legend Gray backing Kisnorbo to handle Man Utd attack

Former Leeds United coach Eddie Gray is backing Aussie Patrick Kisnorbo to handle Manchester United's star strikers in tomorrow's FA Cup clash. Leeds go to Old Trafford for the first time in six years and Kisnorbo will come face-to-face with United stars Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov.

But Leeds legend Gray insists: "I actually think that Jermaine Beckford's pace will cause problems for whoever plays, and you'd also fancy Richard Naylor and Patrick Kisnorbo to put up a good fight at the back.

"They're proper central defenders, the sort who strikers always know are on the pitch.

"The thing about Leeds is that they score goals and they defend well.

"That gives you a chance anywhere. It's why I'm not expecting anything but hoping for something."
