SIMON Grayson has taken time out from the midst of Leeds’ promotion campaign to send a good luck message to the Seasiders.

Grayson’s Leeds face a crunch battle against Burnley today, aiming to bounce back from a run of five games without a win and get their play-off hopes back on track.

But despite the pressure of that, he admits he will also be keeping tabs on how Pool get on against Stoke.

“When you spend so long at a club, both as a player and a manager, you obviously get attached to a place,” said Grayson, who guided the Seasiders to the Championship during his three-and-a-half years in charge.

“I was delighted they made it to the Premier League, and I’m delighted they have done so well.

“I just hope they can do enough in the last few games to get the points they need to stay up.

“The fans are terrific and I would be delighted for them if the club could do it.

“There are still a lot of lads there from my time and the way they have adapted to the top flight has been great to see.

“I wish them all the best for the last four games.”
