Leeds unveil their new kit for the 2009/10 season, a very similar kit to the previous one.

Luciano Becchio soon levels the match before Jimmy Abdou breaks Leeds hearts with an equaliser with just under 20 minutes remaining to send the Lions to Wembley and condemn Leeds to another season in League One.

The club are to offer leading goalscorer Jermaine Beckford a new deal as he only has 12 months left on his current deal.
