LUFC A look back at Leeds United v Hull City
Leeds United and Hull City will meet for the twenty-second time at Elland Road when the two sides clash on Tuesday night.
In the previous twenty one, Leeds have much the better record, winning thirteen to Hull`s two and six being drawn.
The first ever clash between the two sides came way back in the 1920/21 season when the sides battled out a 1-1 draw.
They clashed again the following season when Hull recorded one of only two victories at Elland Road with a 2-0 win.
Hull`s only over win at Elland Road came during the 1987/88 season when they also secured a 2-0 win
Leeds best ever win came during the 1923/24 season when they won 5-2.
Many Leeds fans fondly remember the classic game at Elland Road during the 1989/90 season.
John Hendrie and Vinnie Jones had already scored for Leeds but they found themselves 3-2 down with just six minutes remaining.
A goal from Imre Varadi and a superb strike from Gordon Strachan in the final minute secured all three points for Leeds on their way to the Second Division title.
When the two side met last season, Leeds won their first game of the season at the third attempt with a 4-1 win.
Ross McCormack fired Leeds ahead before Tom Lees put through his own goal to draw Hull level.
Lees made amends at the other end when he fired Leeds ahead and further goals from Robert Snodgrass and Ramon Nunez secured a comfortable Leeds win.
