Westley won't confirm Leeds interest

Stevenage manager Graham Westley would not confirm if Leeds have been chasing Lawrie Wilson, although did say he would be surprised if any clubs were watching his players after the weekend loss to Notts County.

Boro were comfortably beaten at Broadhall Lane by Martin Allen's side as Lee Hughes and Ben Burgess secured a 2-0 win for the visitors.

And, amid suggestions Leeds boss Simon Grayson has been monitoring Wilson, Westley said he expects better from his players - whether they are under the microscope or not.

“I should think that the important thing for any player is to go and put in performances game in game out that keeps any interest that is bubbling alive," said the Boro boss.

“I don’t think there will be too many clubs interested in too many performances that our players put in [on Saturday].”


Leeds, meanwhile, face Manchester United at Elland Road tonight for the first time in eight years as the great rivals prepare to contest a Carling Cup encounter.

And, says Grayson, it is the type of occasion he lives for as a manager.

"As a manager and as players you want to test yourselves against the best and over the past few seasons we've played Liverpool, Man U, Tottenham, and Arsenal, and overall we've done well," he told the official Leeds website.
