Leeds

Leeds have a 100% record this season, they have won two games at home and three away.

In the first round they defeated Darlington 1-0 away thanks to a goal from Enoch Showunmi.

The Hornets only defeat came at Sheffield United where they lost 2-0.

In the first round they defeated Barnet 2-0 away from home but had to wait till extra time to see off their League Two opponents.

Last season they also made the fourth round before Premiership Tottenham Hotspur beat them 2-1 at Vicarage Road.

History

Watford won on their first two visits to Elland Road, the first came in a League Cup tie in 1984 when they won 4-0.

They have also met in the League Cup once at Watford with them also winning that game 2-1 in 1992.

The last time they met at Elland Road was in the 2005/06 season when Leeds won 2-1 thanks to two goals from Robbie Blake.

The last time they met was in the 2005/06 Championship Play off final when Leeds didn`t turn up and were beaten 3-0.
