Leeds entertain Northampton Town on Saturday in their final League One clash of the season before the lottery of the Play Offs begin.
The Whites recorded their eight League win in their last ten games last Saturday with a 1-0 win against Hartlepool United away.
Last time out at home they recorded their tenth straight home win with a 1-0 victory over Stockport County.
Leeds will be hoping to extend that record to eleven games and with it the possibility of moving up the table to finish in third or fourth place and secure home advantage in the second leg of the Play Off semi final.
Last time out at home they lost 1-0 against Play off side MK Dons.
Last time out away they won 3-1 at Leyton Orient a result that helped them in their plight to avoid relegation.
Northampton go into Saturday`s game needing a point to be certain of avoiding relegation as they have a far superior goal difference to Carlisle United.
The two clubs have only ever met on nine occasions and three of those were in the space of 18 days earlier this season.
They have met on four occasions at Elland Road with Leeds winning two and two being drawn.
In their previous encounters this season they shared a 1-1 draw in the FA Cup at Elland Road first, Scott McGleish gave the Cobblers an early lead before they had Giles Coke sent off for two bookable offences. Andy Robinson equalised for Leeds from the penalty spot late in the first half and despite dominating the rest of the game couldn`t find a winner.
In the replay Leeds had the game sewn up by half time, goals from Beckford (two), an own goal and a rare strike by Ben Parker gave the Whites a 4-1 half time lead.
Beckford completed his hat trick with a well taken individual goal and a last minute consolation goal by Jason Crowe saw the match finish 5-2.
Northampton gained quick revenge a week later when a late goal from loan striker Nicholas Bignall secured all three points for the home side.
Liam Davis had initially given the home side a first half lead only for it to be cancelled out by that man Beckford again halfway through the second half.
