Leeds boss expecting tough test against newly-promoted side

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson admits he is wary of the threat Southampton pose in their 2011/12 season opener. Grayson's men, who finished seventh last season, make the trip to the South Coast to take on the newly-promoted Saints on 6th August. The Leeds chief is expecting a tough test versus Southampton, expressing his belief that the club will be eager to impress upon their return to the Championship. "Southampton have just come up and they will have momentum with them," he said. "They will be looking to make an impression on the division. "Then we have two local-ish derby matches with Middlesbrough and Hull City. They are two sides who will be looking to go a stage better this season."
