Leeds players excited after Big Sam brings back attacking training drills

Sam Allardyce has put an emphasis on shooting and crossing drills for forwards after training sessions.

Apparently shooting and crossing drills for the forwards were reportedly axed by both Marsch and Javi Gracia. Leeds sit in 17th place having only scored six goals in their last six Premier League games.

Big Sam was brought in by the club to save their season with four games remaining. A report from The Telegraph says the former England manager has brought back attacking drills on the pitch to help the attackers. This comes after Phil Hay said on The Athletic podcast that Allardyce focused on defensive drills before the Manchester City game.

The players are said to have embraced these new sessions:

“There has also been more of a focus shooting and crossing, with sessions put on after training for the first time, it appears, in months,”

“It did not appear to be a priority for either Jesse Marsch or Javi Gracia, who did not want separate sessions on such basic skills after training. The shot-shy players, though, have embraced it.”

Leeds face Newcastle this weekend before facing West Ham and Spurs.
