PAUL INCE makes his return to football tonight and although I don't like backing against sides with new bosses he faces a tough test at Leeds.
Former MK Dons gaffer Ince takes charge of a Blackpool side with just two wins in 10 and struggling since Michael Appleton's shock move to Blackburn.
Ince has been charged with improving fortunes and he knows the side well having watched son Tom often enough.
However, a trip to Elland Road isn't for the fainthearted these days with Leeds having won six out of seven at home. But Ince will take heart from the fact they've lost their last four but only a 1-0 defeat to Cardiff was on their own turf.
Neil Warnock's men were booed by fans after their 4-0 FA Cup exit to Man City at the weekend but that was no disgrace and he'll be looking for three points to boost their hopes of making the play-offs.
Since Luciano Becchio left for Norwich, Leeds' main man has been Scotland striker Ross McCormack who is 6-1 with BetVictor and Coral to score first.
Both teams should score in what could be an exciting Championship encounter. That pays 8-11 at Stan James and Coral.
There are two games in the Johnstone Paint Trophy, a Northern semi-final second leg between Crewe and Coventry and a Southern semi featuring Southend and Orient.
With Crewe 3-0 up that one's over so let's look at the Southend clash with the home men leading
1-0 from the first meeting at Brisbane Road.
Paul Sturrock's side are in the middle of an injury crisis with seven out and other struggling. He'll be forced to field a makeshift line-up and that could play into the hands of League One Orient who are 17-10 at bet365 and William Hill to win on the night and at least force penalties.
