McCormack's incredible record this season vs Adryan, Doukara, Antenucci combined

Fulham striker Ross McCormack has quite a stunning record of creating chances when compared to Leeds United's attacking triumvirate.

Despite having a multitude of attacking options at their disposal, Leeds have settled on a front three in recent weeks.

Mirco Antenucci and Souleymane Doukara have been impressive up front, supplied by Brazilian sensation Adryan.

They have filled the void left behind by Ross McCormack, ensuring Leeds fans are not too misty-eyed about the striker they sold for £11 million this summer, who they face for the first time this weekend when Fulham come to visit.

McCormack's four Championship goals is an underwhelming return for the price tag, doubled by Antenucci alone.

Yet he has one area where he really excels, and adds a huge amount to this Fulham side.

McCormack has created an incredible 40 chances alone this season, more than the Leeds trio of Doukara, Antenucci and Adryan have combined.

It has allowed Fulham to score 30 goals this season - the highest of any team below 10th in the Championship league table, and just two less than second placed Ipswich.

It's been the club's defence which has offset this, shipping 39, the worst of any team in the division, and leave Kit Symons' team in 19th, three places behind Leeds.

Fans may be tempted to look at McCormack's goal record with scorn, but he offers so much more, and even if he does not hit the net himself this weekend, Leeds will have to be wary of what he can lay on for the rest of his teammates.
