Don Goodman has predicted that Leeds United will hand a team an absolute hiding in the Championship at some point in the future.

According to stats by WhoScored, Leeds average more shots per game [16.5] than any other club in the Championship but they are not the most prolific in front of goal with four other teams scoring more than them so far this term.

Former West Brom striker Goodman has suggested that there is a match on the horizon when Leeds will put most of their chances away rather than wasting them and rack up a massive victory.

“I personally think somebody is going to get a bit of a beating soon because some of these chances they’re creating will be taken,” said Goodman on Sky Sports’ EFL Podcast.

“If you’re a Leeds fan, the time to start worrying is when Leeds United don’t create chances.

“Other than that, performance levels are still high and that will please Marcelo Bielsa.”

For Leeds to dish out a demolition job to one of their Championship opponents, they will need Patrick Bamford to start upping his game in the attack.

In his last 11 appearances across all competitions, Bamford has scored in just one of them and stats by WhoScored show that he ranks third in the league for shots at goal [115] this season.

Leeds create plenty of chances but they need to start taking them if they want to win games more comfortably.

The biggest difference in the last couple of games when they have won 1-0 is that they have been able to keep clean sheets.

If Leeds do not keep clean sheets then at the moment, you have to say they are going to struggle to win unless those chances are put to bed.
