The never ending saga at Elland Road has a shining light – and it’s Ross McCormack. The Championship’s top scorer turned down a move away from the club on deadline day and scored a hat-trick the next week. Ross Casey is backing him to net again.
Ross’ recommended tip:
Ross McCormack Anytime Scorer @ 5/4 – BET NOW
The Scottish international Ross McCormack has been electric this season. Manager Brian McDermott handed him the captain’s armband this season and he has duly obliged with excellent performances on the field. He has already netted 21 league goals – making him the top scorer in the Championship by some distance.
In fact, Yeovil know all about just how deadly he is. McCormack scored a double for Leeds in the home game and will be out to breach the Glovers defence again on Saturday. Yeovil are really struggling to keep the goals out at the moment too, they have conceded eight goals in their last three games.
With conditions in Somerset resembling a swamp, it is unsure if this match will go ahead – but if it does and the pitch is a farce, goalkeepers will be even more on edge. With McCormack in such a rich vein of form and in charge of set-pieces and penalties, back the Scot to score at a soggy Huish Park with a best price of 5/4 available.
Brian McDermott had made Leeds genuine play-off contenders this season until a post-Christmas downward spiral. They sit in eleventh place and are eight points off the play-off spots. Their top price for promotion to the Premier League is 25/1.
I backed Yeovil to face relegation in their first ever Championship season and as it stands it looks likely that will be the case. They are favourites to be playing League One football next season, with a best price of 3/10.
