LUFC Leeds v Birmingham - Over The Years

LUFC Leeds v Birmingham - Over The Years

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

The two sides have met on 44 occasions at Elland Road with Leeds winning 24, Birmingham 9 and 11 draws.

The first ever meeting between the two sides was a Second Division encounter during the 1920/21 season when a penalty from Jim Baker for Leeds was enough to beat the eventual championships of the division.

Birmingham won their first game at Elland Road by the same scoreline when they next met in a First Division encounter during the 1924/25 season.

More recently, Leeds have won seven of the last eight meetings including the last one during the 2006/07 season 3-2.

Two goals by David Healy, one a penalty and an own goal by Olivier Tebily secured the win for Leeds under caretaker manager John Carver.

Leeds biggest win over Birmingham is 4-0 on two occasions during the 1972/73 season (Allan Clarke (2), Mick Jones & Peter Lorimer) and the 1986/87 season (Ian Baird (2), Keith Edwards & John Sheridan).

Birmingham enjoyed their biggest win at Elland Road in their last visit, last season.

Despite taking an early lead through Ross McCormack, Nikola Zigic scored four times for Birmingham in a 4-1 win for the visitors.

The defeat proved to be manager Simon Grayson`s last game in charge, with him being sacked by the club the following day.

In the 44 meetings, there is an average of 2.30 goals per game with Leeds scoring 68 and Birmingham 33.

Stat Attack
The two sides met on eight occasions between 1972/73 and 1980/81 with Birmingham failing to score in all eight games.
