Can Smith stop Burnley completing first double?

Can Smith stop Burnley completing first double?

Promotion chasing Burnley meet Leeds United at Turf Moor this afternoon.

Burnley look well on course for securing an automatic promotion place and they will be hoping to secure a first ever double over Leeds having won 2-1 at Elland Road earlier this season.

Leeds are now looking over their shoulder more than chasing the teams above them and they will be desperate to get over the fifty point mark as soon as possible.

SkyBet make Burnley 8/11 favourites, Leeds are 4/1 and it is 5/2 on the draw.

Burnley are sweating on the fitness of leading goalscorer Danny Ings who limped out of the midweek draw at Birmingham City, so they may need to rely on the goals of fellow striker Sam Vokes. Vokes, who had a short loan spell with Leeds in 2008, needs just one goal to reach the 20-goal mark for the season. Vokes is 3/1 to score the first goal of the game.

Matt Smith is pushing for a start for Leeds after coming off the bench to score in each of their last two games. Smith hit double figures for the season in the midweek loss to Reading and he is 8/1 to open the scoring.
