Lonergan Closing In on Leeds Return

Leeds United goalkeeper Andy Lonergan is closing on a return to the first team following injury.Lonergan hasn`t played since breaking a finger at Doncaster in October but he returned in a midweek in a behind closed doors friendly with Bradford City at Thorp Arch.The goalkeeper enjoyed his return, keeping a clean sheet in a comfortable 3-0 win.Alex McCarthy is only available for next weekend`s game at Watford before coming to the end of his loan period from Reading.The Reading keeper has kept three clean sheets in six appearances since arriving at the club.Veteran keeper Maik Taylor signed a short-term deal with the club in November and has been acting as number two.

Paul Rachubka was loaned out to League One side Tranmere Rovers last month, after suffering a number of disastrous moments between the sticks for Leeds when he first came into the side following Lonergan`s injury.
