Kemar Roofe 6/5 to score anytime against Blackburn in Wednesday’s Boxing Day matchup

Competition: Championship

Market: Kemar Roofe to score anytime

Odds: 6/5 @ Bet 365

Looking to continue their stellar winning run and also with the chance to widen the gap at the top of the Championship table, high flying Leeds will welcome Blackburn to Elland Road on Boxing Day afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, showing a tremendous amount of heart to come from two goals behind to take three points off of playoff hopefuls Aston Villa over the weekend, the Whites are now enjoying a six-match winning run and also hold a one-point advantage at the top of the table. Tipped by many to be a leading contender in the promotion race, one man to watch for the hosts will be leading goalscorer Kemar Roofe. Once again finding the net at Villa Park on Sunday, the 25-year-old already has 11 for the season and three in his last three matches for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

As for the visitors, while Tony Mowbray’s side briefly had their sights set on securing a surprise top-six finish after being promoted from League One last season, a poor run of form has seen Blackburn freefall down the Championship table. Coming off the back of a 1-0 loss at home to Norwich over the weekend, the Rovers have now recorded just one win in their last six league outings. Now sat way down in 14th, it will be their form away from Ewood Park giving Mowbray the biggest headache. The visitors have failed to win any of their last five matches on the road, shipping 12 goals on that winless run.
