Leeds’ seven-match unbeaten run in the Championship came to an end in midweek as they were edged out at in-form Birmingham but the Whites should get back to winning ways this afternoon by seeing off Cardiff at Elland Road.
Simon Grayson’s troops have a solid 4-1-1 record on their own patch and they’re 13/10 (Sportingbet) to improve on that at the expense of the Bluebirds, Stan James’ 9/4 outsiders. Malky Mackay’s men are sweating on the fitness of star striker Kenny Miller and if he doesn’t make it then the visitors’ hopes dwindle further while the fact that the Bluebirds have managed only one away win this term doesn’t inspire confidence.
Top scorer for the hosts is Ross McCormack with an impressive nine league goals in 13 appearances and the Scot has an extra incentive to put in a good performance as he faces his old club.
The 25-year-old is 5/1 courtesy of Skybet to come back to haunt his former employers by breaking the deadlock.
