LUFC Warnock - Strike duo will be a nuisance

LUFC Warnock -  Strike duo will be a nuisance

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock believes Luciano Becchio and Ross McCormack can upset a lot of championship defences this season.

The pair are already in great form this season. Becchio made it two goals in two games with the winner against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday and McCormack as netted one for Leeds and one on his international comeback for Scotland against Australia in midweek.

Warnock is also predicting a good fight for which one will finish the season as top scorer at the club.

Speaking in the Sun, Warnock said, "They may not have a great deal of pace between them, but they sure are a big threat to opposition defences.

"If we can keep them fit and firing, then they can be a real nuisance this season.

"They are both pretty short odds to finish the campaign as the top scorer here, and either of them have the ability to come out on top."


McCormack led the goalscoring chart for Leeds last season, netting 19 in all competitions.

The previous season, Becchio led the way with 20 goals in all competitions.

The Argentinian striker who arrived at Elland Road in the summer of 2008 as reached double figures in each of his four previous seasons with the club.

The 28 year old has now scored 69 goals in 192 appearances for Leeds.

McCormack signed for Leeds in 2010 from Cardiff City and after a lean first season, when he had to wait until the final two games of the season to score his first goals for Leeds; he led the way throughout last season after netting 10 goals in the first 13 games of the season.

The Scotland international committed his long-term future to Leeds on Friday when he signed a new three-year deal and his partnership with Becchio looks ready to flourish, as Leeds look to have a serious go at promotion back to the Premier League under Warnock.
