LUFC McCormack aiming for golden boot

LUFC McCormack aiming for golden boot

Leeds United striker Ross McCormack is setting his sights on the championship golden boot after netting his fourteenth goal of the season at Bristol City on Saturday.

McCormack is now just two behind Southampton striker Rickie Lambert at the top of the goal scoring charts in the championship this season.

The 25 year old could have quite easily have been level or even in front of Lambert on Saturday after having three goals ruled out for offside in the second half.

McCormack says the main thing is Leeds keep winning as they try to push for promotion but he admits he would be lying if he said he wasn`t looking at the top goalscorer position.

Speaking in the Yorkshire Post , McCormack said, "I probably could have had a few more goals.

"To have three ruled out for offside was strange as I am not really sure any of them were offside.

"On another day, I might have got a couple more but it wasn`t to be.

"I would be lying if I said I wasn`t thinking about being top scorer. But the main thing is the team won."


The Scottish international striker set the pace in the early months of the season, netting nine times in the first ten championship games of the season.

He then went through something of a barren spell, netting just once in his next thirteen games before rediscovering his form in front of goal at the start of 2012.

McCormack has netted in four of Leeds last five championship games to close the gap on Lambert.

Robert Snodgrass is also in the running, netting his eleventh goal of the season on Saturday.

Snodgrass has now netted three times in four games since returning from surgery on his appendix over the festive period.

Lambert is still the clear favourite with most bookmakers to claim the golden boot with his price generally around 11/10.

McCormack is second favourite and he could be worth a little flutter with him generally available at 8/1.

Snodgrass is around 16/1 to finish top scorer although he is 39/1 with betfair.
