LUFC McCormack to return to form?

Despite their recent poor form Leeds United are favourites to come away from Oakwell with all three points when they face Barnsley on Saturday with bookies Bet365.

Leeds have picked up just one point from their last three games and go into the Yorkshire derby without captain Jonny Howson and inspirational midfielder Robert Snodgrass.

Despite this, Leeds are 6/4 to make the short trip back up the M1 with all three points.

Barnsley beat Leeds at Elland Road just five weeks ago and are unbeaten in the three games between the two sides since Leeds return to the championship.

Last season at Oakwell, Barnsley won 5-2 and they seem a big price at 7/4 to claim all three points in this one.

If you fancy the sides to share the points then it is 23/10 on a draw.

The Leeds strikers have drawn a blank between them in the last four games and the team have failed to score in the last two.

Despite this Ross McCormack and Luciano Becchio are joint favourites to open the scoring at 11/2.

In the game at Elland Road last month, Ricardo Vaz Te and Craig Davies were on target for Barnsley.

Davies is 6/1 and Vaz Te is 8/1 to open the scoring for the home side.

Vital Leeds predictions:

Leeds win 2-1 17/2
McCormack to score first 11/2
