LUFC Brighton v Leeds Over The Years
Vital Leeds looks at the head-to-head record between Brighton and Hove Albion and Leeds United on the South Coast over the years.
The two clubs have met on eighteen previous occasions at Brighton with both sides winning seven games each and there have been four draws.
Despite the two clubs long histories, it wasn`t until the 1960/61 season that they had their first meeting at the Goldstone Ground.
Brighton ran out 2-1 winners that day in a Second Division encounter.
The following season, Leeds gained revenge with a 3-1 win.
Their last ever encounter at the Goldstone Ground came during Leeds promotion season of 1989/90 when a late equaliser earned Brighton a share of the spoils in a 2-2 draw.
The overall record at the Goldstone Ground saw Brighton win five games, Leeds four and two draws.
It was until the 2004/05 season that the two clubs met again; by which time Brighton had moved to the Withdean Stadium, (I use the word stadium loosely).
Brighton won the first two encounters at the Withdean with both sides in the championship.
The two sides met three times whilst they were in League One with Leeds winning all three without conceding a goal.
Leeds had the slightly better record at the Withdean winning three games to Brighton`s two.
Last season saw the first ever meeting between the two at The Amex Stadium. In a game shown live on Sky TV, Leeds raced into a two-goal lead thanks to goals from Andy Keogh and Ross McCormack.
The game swung in the second half with Craig Mackail-Smith (2) and an Ashley Barnes penalty putting Brighton 3-2 ahead.
Leeds had the final word with McCormack equalising deep into stoppage time for a 3-3 draw.
