Key Player:

Max Gradel: The Ivorian wide-man has to be considered one the danger-men for the match against Leeds United. The tricky winger who is also adept upfront is a player, who on his day can be a total menace to opposition defences. Armed with pace, skill and a powerful shot, Gradel has unsurprisingly adapted comfortably to life in the Championship having made the step up from League 1. Gradel started his career at Leicester City and played a valid role in the Foxes` promotion season making a total of 27 league appearances. Gradel also had two spells on loan at Bournemouth where he made 37 appearances scoring 10 goals. Once Leicester were promoted to the Championship, Gradel found first team appearances hard to come by and joined Leeds United on loan in 2009. Gradel made 14 league appearances scoring 3 times and in the January transfer window of that season he made the move permanent helping Leeds back to the Championship.
