Sold by Leeds, this striker is now the Championship's most creative player

Ross McCormack has been a regular creator for Fulham this season after being sold by Leeds United.

Ross McCormack may not have hit the back of the net as frequently as he would have been hoping to after leaving Leeds United for Fulham last summer, but he has still shown his class in another way.

McCormack topped the Championship's scoring charts last season, with his total of 28 goals being a major reason why Leeds stayed in the division.

That goalscoring total was what attracted Fulham to part with a sizeable amount of cash to sign the Scotland international frontman, but they may feel they haven't quite got their money's worth so far.

McCormack has only managed 10 league goals to date this campaign and his predatory instincts seem to have deserted him.

Even so, it would be wrong to suggest that he hasn't had an impact at Fulham as it seems that he has adapted his play to suit his new team.

McCormack may not be the potent goalscorer that he once was at Craven Cottage, but he has turned into Fulham's main source of creativity.

The 28-year-old has forged more clear-cut opportunities for his teammates than any other player in the Championship, and that shows just how well rounded a striker he is.

Not only does McCormack offer goals, but he also has the vision and skill needed to be an architect for his side and he should be highly commended for leading the Championship's creativity stats at this stage of the season.

At the moment McCormack's closest challengers to be the Championship's top creator are Birmingham City's David Cotterill and Watford's Troy Deeney. 

McCormack will be under pressure to keep creating for his team between now and the end of the season as Fulham are not totally safe.

Although Kit Symons' men should avoid the drop, they cannot afford to switch off and McCormack's quality will be very important to them if they are to keep picking up points.
