LUFC Exeter v Leeds Preview

The Grecians have won just one of their last nine games when they beat Southend United 1-0 on the 19th December.

Last time out they lost 3-1 at Norwich City last Saturday.

The last time they played at home they drew 1-1 with Gillingham.

Their home form is quite good and they have lost just one of their last ten played at St James Park.

The Whites came back down to earth last Saturday after their heroics at Old Trafford the previous weekend, when they was lucky to get away with a point in a 1-1 home draw with lowly Wycombe Wanderers.

In their last away game they caused the shock of the FA Cup third round when they won 1-0 at Manchester United.

Leeds continue to set the pace in League One and are currently six points clear at the top and with a game in hand on their nearest rivals.

They have lost just one away game all season in all competitions when they went down 2-1 at Millwall in October, It was also they last time Leeds tasted defeat in any competition.

The two clubs paths have only ever crossed on four occasions in their long histories.

In those previous four meetings, Leeds have won two, Exeter one and one draw.

When the two sides met at Elland Road on the opening day of the season it was the first time they had ever met in the league with the previous three meetings all being in the FA Cup.

Prior to the league game this season the last time they met was in 1931 when Exeter won an FA Cup tie 3-1 at home.

In the two previous meetings at St James Park, Exeter have won one and drawn one.

When they met on the opening day of this season, Leeds claimed all three points thanks to two goals from Jermaine Beckford.

Beckford gave Leeds the lead inside fifteen minutes. Exeter equalised thanks to a wonderful free kick from Russell, this was despite being down to ten men after Barry Corr was shown a straight red card on the hour mark.

Beckford claimed all three points in the closing minutes for Leeds when he was allowed to head into an empty net with the Exeter keeper, Jones rooted to the spot.
