Norwich City spoiled Brighton's Championship title-winning party. Can they apply the fatal blow to Leeds' fading play-off hopes at a sold out Elland Road?

City certainly must feel they owe Garry Monk's side one after painful league and cup defeats earlier this season. The pedants may argue Norwich drew 2-2 after extra-time in the League Cup last 16 tie, but it was the Whites who were celebrating after a penalty shoot out win. Chris Wood scored in both games and the Championship's top scorer is as short as 100/30 to repeat the trick and open the scoring for the hosts on Saturday.

Ronaldo Vieira's swinging long range shot earned Leeds all three points in dramatic fashion at Carrow Road back in November. The young midfielder with the memorable name is available at 16/1 to score first for Leeds. Cameron Jerome and Nelson Oliveira head the market predictably for Norwich. But Jonny Howson has already scored once before at Elland Road against his old club in a Norwich shirt. The man from Morley is 12/1 to score first for Norwich. Expect an under-stated celebration if that is the case.

Leeds need a win to revive flagging play-off hopes. A full house should guarantee a stonking atmosphere.
