LUFC Leeds v Watford - Over The Years
Vital Leeds looks at the head-to-head record between Leeds and Watford at Elland Road over the years.
The two sides have only ever met on nine occasions with Leeds winning four, Watford three and two draws.
The first meeting between the two sides came during the 1984/85 season when Watford won a Milk Cup third round tie 4-0.
The first league encounter between the two came during the 1988/89 season when Watford claimed all three points in a 1-0 win.
Leeds claimed their first victory the following season when goals from Chris Fairclough and Andy Williams helped secure a 2-1 win as they marched on towards the Division Two title.
It was another decade before the two sides met again when goals from Michael Bridges, Michael Duberry and Darren Huckerby helped secure a 3-1 Leeds victory in the Premier League.
The next meeting came in the Championship during the 2004/05 season and is the only draw between the two sides to date.
Watford twice took the lead through Bruce Dyer but a goal from Jermaine Wright and a late goal from Clarke Carlisle salvaged a point in a 2-2 draw.
The following season Leeds again came from behind to claim a 2-1 win.
Ashley Young had given the visitors a first half lead but two goals from Robbie Blake ensured the points stayed at Elland Road.
The next meeting came in the second round of the Carling Cup in 2009/10 when Leeds won in extra time thanks to two goals from Robert Snodgrass.
Snodgrass looked to have won the game for Leeds in normal time until a late Marvin Sordell goal sent the game into extra time.
Leeds weren`t to be denied when Snodgrass struck just eight minutes into extra time to earn Leeds a place in round three.
The two sides have met in each of the last two seasons. In the 2010/11 season, the game came to life in the final twenty minutes.
Luciano Becchio fired Leeds ahead after 72 minutes only to be trailing after 86 minutes when Watford came back with goals from Lee Hodson and Andreas Weimann.
Just when it looked all over for Leeds, Troy Deeney smashed the ball into his own net to earn Leeds a point.
Last season, two goals from Chris Iwelumo earned Watford the points in a 2-0 win. Leeds defeat was compounded in injury time when Paul Connolly was sent off.
