'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Clayton hoping for the 'Boo's' at Elland Road

Adam Clayton who joined Huddersfield in the summer after two years at Elland Road, is expecting a rough ride from the home fans as he makes his first return to Elland Road since departing last summer.

Leeds manager Neil Warnock had deemed Clayton surplus to requirements and had placed Clayton on the transfer list, much to the surprise of the Leeds fans & Clayton himself.

The former Manchester City trainee joined then former manager Simon Grayson at Huddersfield Town and in the last meeting set up the first goal and converted a penalty to make it 2-2 at half time. Clayton of course celebrated that goal by sliding on his knees in front of Neil Warnock who gave sarcastic applause, but Clayton said it hadn't been pre-planned or aimed at the Leeds fans, just solely at Warnock.

Speaking in the Huddersfield Daily Examiner , Clayton said, 'It wasn`t aimed at the Leeds fans, it was between myself and Neil Warnock, a spur of the moment thing, and we had a laugh about it afterwards.

'I`ve certainly no problem with the fans over there, and I`d love to see Leeds get back to the Premier League, because that`s where they belong.

'But I`m expecting some boos, and to be honest, the more the better because that will mean I`m having an impact on the match.'


Clayton is on 9 bookings for the season, another before Easter would leave the midfielder with a two match suspension, Anthony Gerrard is also walking this tightrope.

James Vaughan returns to face Leeds after completing his two match suspension for reaching 10 yellow cards.
