In-form striker Davide Somma earned the praise of manager Simon Grayson after Leeds moved into fifth place with a 1-0 win over Coventry.

South Africa international Somma netted after 56 minutes, his second decisive goal of the week after he earned Leeds a 2-2 draw at Hull on Tuesday night.

Having ended last season on loan with League Two Lincoln, he has now scored 10 goals from as many npower Championship starts and his manager is delighted with his progress.

"He's done brilliant to be fair," Grayson said.

"We sent him out on loan last season, he started this season with a bang and then he was out of the team because of the formation we were playing, but he's scored whenever he's come off the bench.

"He's still got a lot more work to do with his overall play, but he's certainly got that one thing that a striker lives off and that's knowing where the back of the net is.

"He can shoot with both feet, he's strong, he works hard and he's got all the right ingredients. But to go from League Two to the Championship in half a season shows what the lad is capable of and I'm delighted we've got him."
