BRIAN McDermott insists there is plenty more to come from Leeds United golden boy Ross McCormack.

The free-scoring striker took his seasonal tally to 16 in United’s thrilling 3-3 draw with Watford, netting his tenth goal in his last six outings.

The Scot requires just three more goals to equal his best-ever seasonal tally of 19 for United in the 2011-12 campaign, with just over a half of the season still to go.

And it stands, he is also well on course to surpassing his top haul in a season of 23 goals, achieved for former club Cardiff City in 2008-09.

McDermott has been thoroughly impressed and enthused by the responsibility being taken by the 27-year-old through an impeccable 2013-14 thus far allied to his goalscoring prowess.

But he is confident that there is plenty more to come with United and McCormack aiming to turn a positive season into something truly memorable.

Boss McDermott said: “Ross was bright and vibrant on Saturday and makes things happen. You need big players to come up with the goods.

“He’s working so hard. He’s playing like a leader. He’s still not at his peak, but he’s getting better all the time. The youngsters are getting better too.”
