This afternoon, exciting new-look Leeds and title-chasing nose-bleeders West Ham might draw 2-2, with Jimmy Hasselbaink or Ian Wright scoring first. It'll be such an action-packed scrum of a bunfight, who can really tell? Duncan Disorderly Ferguson must be fancied to draw first blood for Ruud's boys at the Riverside tomorrow in what should also be a goalfest - perhaps another 2-2 - while in Italy, Juventus must surely rouse themselves to beat Lazio, perhaps 2-0. Filippo Inzaghi might score first. If only Sheffield Wednesday's Paolo Di Canio weren't suspended, he'd be backable to hit something first (maybe even the net) against Forest on Monday, but as he's out, Andy Booth is preferred to do the honours. The Owls should shade this no-hopers' night out.
