Naylor out to nail play-off spot for Leeds United
“I am not one for going knocking on the manager’s door. You have to look at yourself if you are not in the team, keep yourself fit and do the extra bits and pieces. It’s not nice but it’s part of football. A few of the lads need to do the same if they are not in the team. You need to work hard and look to get your chance.”
So does he feel up to playing at Palace? “After not playing for so long, two games in quick succession is a bit of an ask,” he replied. “I am sure the manager will have a word with me. I am no spring chicken and I hadn’t played for a while, so we’ll just wait and see.
“Nearly every team has something to play for at the moment and every game is a good one to play in. Palace is one we are looking forward to and one we can win. After the performance against Reading the mood is a bit more positive.”
Top scorer Luciano Becchio is again rated doubtful by Grayson after missing Friday night’s game with a hamstring injury.
