One to watch – Ross McCormack

The striker has been scoring freely this season with 18 goals to his name.

Ex-Cardiff striker McCormack struck against Wednesday in the Elland Road fixture and is sure to be in the hunt to add to his tally at Hillsborough.

The striker’s highlights of the season came in United’s trip to The Valley where Leeds claimed a 4-2 win – all four goals scored by McCormack.
