In Leeds only other home championship game this season they were beaten 1-0 by Middlesbrough.

Last time out, Leeds were beaten 2-1 at Ipswich after leading 1-0 at half time. The game changed early in the second half when Aidy White was shown a straight red card.

Southampton (a) L 1-3
Middlesbrough (h) L 0-1

Ipswich (a) L 1-2

The home defeat to Middlesbrough is Leeds only home defeat in the championship since losing to Cardiff last October, a run stretching back eighteen games.

Six different players have scored so far for Leeds this season.

Crystal Palace
Having struggled in the last two championship seasons, Palace have made a good start this time around taking ten points from their opening five games.

Burnley (h) W 2-0
Coventry (h) W 2-1
Hull (a) W 1-0
Blackpool (h) D 1-1
