Leeds United put four goals past Carlsberg South West Peninsula League champions Bodmin Town on Wednesday night, in game two of their pre-season tour.

Around 3,000 fans made it through the gates at Priory Park for the match, more than double the attendance for Bodmin's match with Premier League side QPR last summer.

Leeds were without Robert Snodgrass, who left the pre-season tour of Cornwall to open talks with Norwich about joining the Carrow Road club.
Luciano Becchio was also absent from the starting line-up having picked up an ankle injury in the 6-0 win over Tavistock on Monday night.

The Argentinean took a place in a packed grandstand to watch the game with the large number of Leeds fans who have travelled to watch the match.

Despite two key absentees, it was a strong line-up Leeds named. Ross McCormack, new signing Luke Varney and the impressive Aidy White all started.

Bodmin named former Crystal Palace keeper, and Falmouth-born, Kevin Miller in their side, with Adam Carter providing a target man up front.
It was a close opening 15 minutes, with Bodmin arguably creating the better chances. They had optimistic appeals for a penalty turned down when Carter was pulled back by Leeds United trialist Martin Crainie in the box.

Shane Krac then hit an effort from the edge of the box, which was easily saved by goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown, who joined Leeds United from Portsmouth on Monday.

Bodmin were defending well at this point, getting two banks of four in front of the ball as Leeds pressed. However, the Championship club began to spread the play in the 16th minute, hitting a couple of cross-field balls to open up space.

It allowed Paul Green to deliver an excellent cross for debutant Luke Varney to head home.

Varney almost had a second moments later as McCormack played a good through-ball to him. However, the former Portsmouth striker elected to feed a pass to Andy Gray, instead of shooting, and Bodmin scrambled the ball clear.

Further chances came Bodmin's way in the first half as Crainie gave away a free-kick 30-yards from goal, which Krac drilled towards the Leeds United net forcing Ashdown to tip the ball over his crossbar.

But it was Leeds who were beginning to take control of the game as the half wore on. They began to find space and Varney should have added a second when he blazed over from eight yards out. McComrack then played in Paul Green on 37 minutes, but his shot was well blocked by Miller.

Further chances came as McCormack was denied a goal by the offside flag, before Gray continued his good scoring record in pre-season by firing in from close range, on 42 minutes, after Michael Brown's effort had been blocked.

Leeds were then given a fortunate penalty on the stroke of half-time as McCormack went down in the area, with the ball running out of play for a goal kick. To Bodmin’s annoyance, referee Brett Huxtable pointed to the spot and McCormack duly stepped up and drilled the spot kick into the right corner of Miller's goal.

Leeds added a fourth early in the second half as a cross into the box was palmed away from goal by Miller, under pressure from Gray. Unfortunately the keeper didn't get sufficient distance on the save and White was on hand to drill a shot into the back of the Bodmin net.

The second half was then disrupted by substitutions. Leeds rhythm was halted as the impressive White, McCormack and Gray all exited to make way for some of the youth and fringe players.

As a result Ashdown was forced into a couple of good saves for Leeds United.

At the other end Ramon Nunez had header blocked Miller and Dominic Poleon looked lively, but failed to deliver a telling final ball into the box and blasted a couple of efforts well wide of the target.
