LUFC Leeds v Southampton Head To Head

Vital Leeds looks at the head-to-head record between Leeds United and Southampton over the years at Elland Road.

The two sides have met on 44 occasions at Elland Road with Leeds winning 25, Southampton 6 and 13 have been drawn.

The first ever meeting between the two came during the 1922/23 season when a solitary goal from Joe Harris won the game for Leeds.

Southampton had to wait until their sixth visit to Elland Road to score their first goal when the sides drew 1-1.

Scoring at Elland Road has been a problem for Southampton, they have failed to score on 23 of their 44 visits to Leeds and they have scored in just 4 of their last 14 visits.

It wasn`t until their 15th visit to Elland Road that Southampton returned to the South Coast with maximum points when they won 1-0 during the 1966/67 season.

Whenever a Leeds v Southampton fixture comes around it always gets people talking about the fixture at Elland Road in 1972, ironically 40 years ago this weekend, when Leeds destroyed the side from the South Coast 7-0 and one passage of play saw them keep the ball for around 30 passes.

The game was shown as highlights on Match of the Day with commentator Barry Davies commenting during the passing 'To say Leeds United are playing with Southampton is the understatement of the season. Poor Southampton just don`t know what day it is. It is almost cruel.`

Leeds goals that day came from Peter Lorimer (3), Allan Clarke (2), Jack Charlton and Mick Jones.

The last time the two sides met was in a League One clash in December 2009 when a superb striker from Robert Snodgrass secured all three points for Leeds in a 1-0 win.
