Leeds United are in championship action this evening against Blackpool at Elland Road in a game they are desperate to win.
Leeds have slipped into the bottom half of the table after the results on Tuesday night and whilst manager Neil Warnock still talks about play-off ambitions, they are now keeping one eye on the teams below them.
The whites have picked up just one point from their last three championship games and with a difficult run of fixtures coming up, this game is almost a must win.
Blackpool are also desperate for points and they will are under new management with Paul Ince becoming the third manager this season at Bloomfield Road after being unveiled on Monday.
Bookmakers Paddypower have Leeds as slight favourites to take the three points at 6/4 whilst it is 7/4 on a Blackpool win. A draw does little for either side and it is 12/5 on the draw.
Luke Varney is enjoying his best run in the Leeds side since the opening month of the season and he has scored two goals in the last five games. Varney enjoyed a spell with Blackpool in their season in the Premier League and he is 17/2 to score the opener against them.
Tom Lees scored the opening goal of the game when the two sides met at Bloomfield Road in August. The defender hasn`t netted since August and he is 25/1 for the first goal.
Tom Ince should be back in the starting line-up for Blackpool after being rested at the weekend. Ince will be hoping to give his dad a perfect start and he is 6/1 to open the scoring.
Former Leeds defender Stephen Crainey returns to Elland Road and he is 33/1 to score first.
