History

The two clubs have met ten times previously at Elland Road with Leeds winning six times to Orient`s one.

Orients sole success coming almost fifty years ago when they won 3-1 in 1960.

When the sides clashed last season at Elland Road, Leeds had to come from behind to win.

Dean Morgan gave the visitors a shock lead on 36 minutes, Leeds were level two minutes later thanks to an own goal and Becchio claimed all three points for the home side with the winner on the stroke of half time.

Jermaine Beckford had a bad night in front of goal missing a penalty and hitting the woodwork on three separate occasions.
