Ipswich’s centre-forward has an excellent record against Leeds, netting six goals against them in just 11 games. In fact, McGoldrick has not scored more times against any other club.
So when Leeds were installed as the 6/1 third favourites to sign the 30-year-old this month, in odds provided by Bet Victor, the prospect of McGoldrick moving to Elland Road would at least prevent fans from viewing a trip to Ipswich with such trepidation.
And, having scored at Championship level for Nottingham Forest and Southampton in the past, McGoldrick is the sort of proven second tier performer that many fans have clamoured for in their attack.
But it appears that Leeds fans are aiming a little higher than a striker who has just 22 Championship goals to his name since the beginning of the 2014/15 season.
McGoldrick, then, would be a cheap option. But not necessarily a popular one.
Very injury prone and not even that good in this league— Kian (@AdamFourshaw) January 18, 2018
