Ross McCormack showed why he has been coveted by Championship rivals after making one goal and scoring a crucial second in Leeds' 2-1 victory at Ipswich.
McCormack, subject of three failed bids from Middlesbrough, played a massive part in Leeds' equaliser after they fell behind to a great strike from David McGoldrick on 11 minutes.
The striker took aim from 25 yards and his speculative effort cannoned off Luke Chambers and into the path of Luke Varney, who made no mistake.
The goal came against the run of play as Ipswich dominated the opening stages, before the visitors matched them before half-time and then deserved their second-half winner.
And it came from McCormack as he cut inside to shoot low past Scott Loach from 20 yards.
The Town keeper could point to a slight deflection off Town midfielder Cole Skuse and the slick Portman Road pitch, but will also look at his own role in the winner.
Ipswich toiled without truly threatening Kenny's goal.
In fact it was the visitors who looked more like adding to their tally, with Loach pushing away Noel Hunt's shot following good work from Lee Peltier and Rodolph Austin and Paul Green's long-range shot fizzing just wide.
