Eddie Gray delivers Leeds verdict ahead of Norwich
By Dominic Toner
Eddie Gary has urged Leeds to be on the front foot to try win the game against Norwich on Saturday.
The Whites face the Canaries in the Championship at Elland Road and need three points to keep their promotion hopes alive.
The Yorkshire giants are seventh-placed in the league table and three points adrift of the play-offs, with just two games remaining to force their way back in.
Garry Monk’s side appear to have blown a huge opportunity to be involved in the end of season drama, but four defeats out of their last six games has hindered their chances.
Gray believes that Leeds must be offensive in their contest against Norwich as only a win will do.

“This is the last throw of the dice,” Gray said, as quoted by Leeds’ official Twitter account. “You’ve got to go out and win the game so you might as well throw caution to the wind and have a right go for it.”
Leeds have struck poor form at the worst time of the season and their play-off rivals have capitalised as a result.
They have been at the top-end of the table for the majority of the campaign and were even mentioned as potential automatic promotion candidates at one point.
They are now trying to squeeze into the play-offs and they must beat eight-placed Norwich, who are most likely already thinking about next season.
However, they are still a very dangerous side and recently beat Reading 7-1 to showcase their qualities.
