Over 2.5 Leeds goals @ 11/8

Leeds have been growing as a threat in the Championship after a slow start and now they look like they could indeed challenge for a top-two spot. They have some work to do to catch the sides above them but they will also be hoping that their rivals can slip-up to help them out too.

A victory against league strugglers Rotherham will be expected on Friday night and with the quality in Daniel Farke's squad, Leeds should be able to score a few in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

They have experienced five league games this term in which they've scored a minimum of three goals and we are expecting them to make it six this weekend.

Joel Piroe to score anytime @ 11/10

Dutch striker Joel Piroe is Leeds' joint-top scorer in the Championship with six goals, alongside Crysencio Summerville. The club invested heavily in him during the summer to bring him in from Swansea City, and so far the forward is paying them back with his contributions in front of goal.

Piroe was on the scoresheet in his last outing for the Whites as they defeated Plymouth Argyle 2-1 before the international break. He will return to action this weekend full of confidence and he will look to add to his tally so that he can boost his chances of winning the Golden Boot.
