Leeds United striker Ross McCormack will make his 100th appearance for the club this evening if he plays against Peterborough United.
McCormack is in his third season at Elland Road since signing from fellow championship side Cardiff City in the summer of 2010.
After a slow start to his Leeds career, when he failed to score in any of his first 19 appearances for the club, he eventually broke his duck on the penultimate weekend of the season when he scored the only goal of the game in the home win over Burnley.
He followed this up with the winner the following weekend as Leeds won 2-1 at champions Queens Park Rangers.
The 26-year-old, who started his career at Glasgow Rangers, took his end of season form into the 2011/12 season and he finished the season as the clubs top scorer with 19 goals.
His Leeds form saw him eventually recalled to the Scotland international side and he scored in his first appearance for his country as a second half substitute against Australia in August.
After two goals in his opening six games of this season for Leeds he suffered a chipped bone in his ankle in the opening stages of the game at Cardiff City, which saw him sidelined for two months.
McCormack struggled to regain a regular place in the side on his return but after scoring against Birmingham City in the FA Cup replay, a game he started, he has once again been a regular in the Leeds starting line-up.
His goal against Birmingham saw him start a run of four goals in five games including a superb winner in the FA Cup tie with Tottenham Hotspur.
The striker has now failed to score in any of his last seven appearances but he continues to work hard for the side.
He has scored 27 goals in his 99 appearances and he will hope to end his barren run in front of goal this evening against Peterborough.
The high turnover of players at Elland Road since the summer makes him the only player at the club who will have made 100 appearances for Leeds from the current squad.
