AT last, football's coming home.

The win at Wolves seems like a lifetime ago, but could there be a better game to whet the appetite again than Leeds United at home?

Probably not - and when you throw in the return of Robbie Blake and Ian Moore in front of the biggest gate of the season, tomorrow's early start has all the makings of a real humdinger.

Eyebrows will especially have been raised at the news that Rob Hulse and David Healy might miss the game through injury, allowing Robbie to partner Ian Moore in the Leeds attack.

Should that prove to be the case, I reckon it's a real result for Steve and the boys.

Ian was never the greatest goalscorer and there's no doubt that Robbie is a talent and he'll be desperate to score on his first game back at Turf Moor since his acrimonious departure. But at least we know what to expect from him and in my eyes Hulse is a far bigger threat.

Robbie will drop deep to pick things up, where as Hulse is one of those strikers I've always preferred; someone who attacks the ball in the real danger areas.

Like his former Crewe Alexandra strike partner Dean Ashton, Hulse is one of the best around at this level and it's no surprise that so many clubs were sniffing around when it became apparent that West Brom were prepared to let him go after barely giving him a chance at the Hawthorns.

It was the same story for Robbie at Birmingham and looking back now, I'll bet he has some regrets about the way his career at Burnley ended.

Things haven't really worked out for him - or Ian come to that - and they seem to have spent more time on the bench than playing.

That's football though.

You put your signature on a piece of paper hoping you are going to better yourself and sometimes the grass isn't always greener.

And from Burnley's point of view, both were big earners and who is to say the club is not stronger without them?
