Any punters just looking to pause for breath after an all-action Boxing Day with a full Premier League programme in football and top-class horse racing, take heed of this wonderful wager!

Here’s why you should see Dexter Blackstock to score last for Nottingham Forest against former club Leeds United at a sensational 6/1 as a banker bet.

This towering target man loves scoring against the Whites for the Reds in what is a traditional festive Championship clash.

Battering ram Blackstock has previous

Five goals in six career outings for Forest against Leeds highlight what a proven performer Blackstock is. Once loaned to the Elland Road outfit after a serious knee injury to rebuild his match fitness, he could well hurt them from the home bench as United visit the City Ground.

Two of Blackstock’s strikes have been the last goal and, with Reds boss Dougie Freedman using him from the bench to good effect away at Wolverhampton Wanderers earlier this month, he looks poised to wreak havoc on home turf after being rested last time out.

A physical striker like Forest frontman Blackstock will relish the battle with Whites centre halves, and the visiting defence have conceded more than a goal per game with 24 let in during 22 matches to date.

Standing 6ft 1in, Blackstock poses a threat from set-pieces and is not alone in that from Reds ranks. Defender Matt Mills will also occupy the opposition, so the striker can exploit this.

Experienced attacker Blackstock is well worth a wager, then, at 6/1 to have the final say in Sky Sports’ live Championship game this Sunday!
