LEEDS United travel to Ipswich Town in the npower Championship today, Saturday, with manager Simon Grayson looking to build on hard-fought results over the past week.

Adam Clayton’s injury time goal, his first for the club, earned Leeds a 2-2 draw at West Ham United last weekend and a Ramon Nunez brace spared United’s blushes as they fought back from a goal down to defeat Doncaster 2-1 in the Carling Cup second round last Tuesday.

The cup come-back was United’s first away win of the season and that is a feat that Grayson will be hoping to replicate in Suffolk.

New loan signings Danny Drinkwater and Cameron Park have bolstered Barnsley’s squad ahead of the Tykes’ visit to Millwall in the npower Championship today.

The Reds will be buoyed by their first win of the Championship season last weekend but the trip to the capital is always a tough one and Keith Hill’s team will need to improve defensively to get anything out of the game.

Manchester United midfielder Drinkwater, 21, who has previously been on loan at Huddersfield Town, will be at Oakwell until early January 2012 while Middlesbrough’s Park, 19, has signed a three-month loan deal.

Lee Clark’s Huddersfield Town will be hoping to forget their midweek Carling Cup exit at Cardiff City and bag three points at the Galpharm Stadium where Wycombe are the visitors today.

It is back to cup action on Tuesday when the Terriers are at Northampton Town in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy first round.
