LUFC Leeds v Shrewsbury Head-to-head

LUFC Leeds v Shrewsbury Head-to-head

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

The two clubs have only ever met on nine occasions at Leeds and this will be the first meeting in nearly 24 years.

In the previous nine meetings, Leeds have won six, two have been drawn and Shrewsbury have won one.

The first meeting came during the 1964/65 season when Leeds won 2-0 in a FA Cup clash, thanks to goals from Eddie Gray and Albert Johanneson in a fifth round tie played in front of over 47,000 at Elland Road.

The first league meeting came during the 1982/83 season when the sides drew 1-1 with Kevin Hird on target for Leeds in front of just over 8,000 fans.

The two sides met in each season up to the 1988/89 season. In the 88/89 season, Howard Wilkinson had recently taken over the helm at Elland Road and the club were in fine form. Leeds had been unbeaten in the League since the arrival of Wilkinson and the new manager had just been named the Division Two manager of the month when the sides met in December. The two sides had already met at Elland Road in November when goals from Bobby Davison (2) and one from Mark Aizlewood had helped Leeds to a 3-1 win in the Simod Cup.

Relegation threatened Shrewsbury came into the game without a win in six games but they left Elland Road with all three points despite goals from Bobby Davison and a John Sheridan penalty with Shrewsbury winning 3-2.
