Grayson bemoans defensive frailties

Leeds manager Simon Grayson has admitted to his growing frustration at being unable to find a solid central defensive partnership this season.Grayson's side have conceded 15 goals in eight league matches so far, an average of almost two per game, and Grayson looked on in dismay as they let slip a two-goal lead at Brighton.The Leeds boss said: "At the moment I've got five centre-halves who've all played at the highest level - [Darren] O'Dea, [Leigh] Bromby, [Andy] O'Brien, [Paddy] Kisnorbo and [Alex] Bruce.
"Somewhere down the line I've been trying to get the right partnership. After 45 minutes I thought we'd got one, but once again we went to sleep."I keep changing personnel around and working hard on the training ground and when you're 2-0 up you should be capable of dealing with whatever's thrown at you."
Grayson drafted in Danny Pugh, equally at home at left-back or midfield, in time to make his debut at Brighton, but said nothing to suggest he would be dipping back into the loan market after the 3-3 draw at the Amex Arena.
