Leeds friendly opponents fail to show

For Massimo Cellino, the number 17 is one to avoid.
New Leeds owner Massimo Cellino is attempting to prepare the club for a promotion push to the Premier League.

Leeds United have been forced to postpone their preseason friendly against Viitorul Constanta after the Romanian side failed to show up.

The Championship club had been due to play at Mulin De Coi, Italy at 16:00 BST on Sunday, but due to their opponents' absence, the club will field two Leeds XIs in a friendly for the fans who travelled to watch the game.

Leeds manager Dave Hockaday confirmed that the game would go ahead as the fans "deserved" to see a match, with the two lineups confirmed as 'Leeds XI Whites' and 'Leeds XI Gold'.

"As of yet the Romanians haven't turned up but we are ready to play. We have officials, match kit and we are here," Hockaday said before the game against Viitorul -- owned by Gheorghe Hagi -- was called off.

Leeds started their preseason tour in fine fashion, recording a club record-breaking 16-0 victory over amateur side FC Gherdeina in northern Italy on Thursday, with Mat Smith scoring six goals.
