LUFC Leeds v Brighton Head To Head

LUFC Leeds v Brighton Head To Head

Vital Leeds looks at the head to head record between Leeds United and Brighton and Hove Albion at Elland Road over the years.

Despite both sides entering the Football League in 1920, this will be only the seventeenth time that they have met at Elland Road.

In the previous sixteen meetings at Elland Road, Leeds have won nine, Brighton one and six have been drawn.

They had to wait forty years before they first clashed during the 1960/61 season.

Leeds won 3-2 thanks to goals from John McCole, Freddie Goodwin and Jack Charlton.

Leeds only defeat to Brighton at Elland Road came during the Christmas period of 1985/86 when the visitors ran out 3-2 winners.

The biggest win for Leeds was the 3-0 win at Elland Road in December 1989. Goals from Vinnie Jones, John Hendrie and Gordon Strachan sent Leeds to the top of the Second Division table for the first time in the season as they went on to secure the championship.

Leeds have only failed to score in one of the previous sixteen games when they sides drew 0-0 in 2007/08.

The two sides last met during Leeds promotion season of 2009/10. Glenn Murray looked like he had secured all three points for the visitors from the penalty spot late in the game but an injury time equaliser from Robert Snodgrass salvaged a point.
