Leeds Southampton Odds : Warnock to bring the spoils for punters at big price

Southampton will look to keep hold of top spot in the Championship when they travel to Elland Road to face Leeds United on Saturday as Paddy Power make Leeds a touch of value to take all three points at 2/1.

A convincing 3-0 win over Watford last weekend, thanks to hat-trick from Rickie Lambert, moved the Saints to 1st position hours after title rivals West Ham had failed to find a way to break down Crystal Palace.

Nigel Adkin’s men now have a one point gap at the top of the table, but know they face a hard task to travel to Leeds and pick up all three points, even if the Whites have been somewhat inconsistent of late, largely thanks to a change in management.

Simon Grayson was shown the door and former QPR boss Neil Warnock stepped into the hot seat in the hope of rekindling their play-off charge, but if his first game in charge was anything to go by he has a hard job in moving them up the league.

A drab 0-0 draw with Portsmouth, who have been beset by financial problems once more this season, at Fratton Park last weekend that would have left the travelling fans feeling a little flat.

That draw left them in 10th place, four points adrift of Cardiff who occupy the final play-off spot. However, victory over a high-flying Southampton side would not only hand them three valuable points, but also give them the momentum they need to turn their season around.

Adkins opted to drop January signing Billy Sharp for the game against Watford but may opt to recall the striker for the trip to Elland Road.

Leeds meanwhile will be able to call up on striker Danny Webber after securing his services on loan for the remainder of the season. They could throw him in at the deep end after firing a blank last time round against Portsmouth.

Overall, this is a game that Warnock and Leeds will relish. Southampton will be determined to prove their class though, so it should be a cracker.

This one gets underway at 5.20pm on Saturday evening.
