Nothing to fear at Leeds - Turner

In advance of Hereford United's visit to Leeds on Saturday, Graham Turner has told the Hereford Times that the big crowd expected could work against the home side.

"There will be a terrific atmosphere which our players will have to get used to, but the crowd will expect Leeds to steamroller us," said Turner.

"So if they are not doing so, then the crowd can get on their backs.

"A lot of players who played at Elland Road last year will be going back there and we enjoyed that experience.

"There is nothing to fear."

Turner confirmed that he will be without Sam Oji, Robbie Threlfall and Steve Guinan for the trip north. Andy Williams is also a doubt as is Moses Ashikodi who has returned to Hereford from Watford and is said to be back in training.

"During the course these things (Injuries) happen," said Turner.

"The most important thing now is to get the confidence of some good results so we can start to climb the table.

"Where better to start than Leeds this Saturday."
