Trivia question
On this day in 1971 Leeds played Wolverhampton Wanderers in a home game but where was it played and why?

1995
Tony Yeboah marks the first home game of the season with one of the best strikes in Premier League history as he scores the only goal of the game in the 1-0 win over Liverpool.

1999
Lee Bowyer and Danny Mills are on target as Leeds beat Sunderland 2-1 at home.

2001
Leeds show their title credentials with a 2-1 win at Arsenal. Ian Harte and Mark Viduka are on target as Leeds finish the game with nine men after Lee Bowyer and Danny Mills are sent off.

2004
Nottingham Forest hold Leeds to a 1-1 draw at Elland Road. Steve Guppy gives Leeds the lead but Andy Reid equalises from the penalty spot for the visitors with twelve minutes remaining.

2010
Davide Somma scores his first two goals for Leeds as they come from behind to beat Millwall 3-1 at Elland Road.

Richard Naylor puts through his own goal before Lloyd Sam equalises for Leeds. Somma comes off the bench to score twice late on to secure the points for Leeds.

2011
Leeds twice come from behind to draw 2-2 at West Ham. Carlton Cole gives West Ham an early lead and Max Gradel wastes a great chance to equalise for Leeds when he misses from the penalty spot.

Ross McCormack equalises for Leeds in the second half before Patrick Kisnorbo puts through his own goal to restore West Ham`s lead.

Adam Clayton equalises for Leeds in stoppage time to earn Leeds a well-deserved point.
