Leeds United and Bristol City meet at Elland Road on Saturday and Vital Leeds looks at the history of the fixture.
They have met on 16 previous occasions at Elland Road with Leeds winning 10, Bristol City 4 and 2 have been drawn.
The first ever encounter between the two sides came during the 1920/21 season when Bristol City left Elland Road with a 1-0 win.
Leeds won the next encounter 3-0 the following season thanks to two goals from Tommy Howarth and one from Jim Moore.
The win remains Leeds biggest home win over Bristol City.
Despite Bristol winning on just four occasions, they have won three of the last eight encounters dating back to the 1973/74 season.
Bristol City enjoyed their biggest win during the 1979/80 season when they left Elland Road with a 3-1 win.
They have met in each of the last two seasons in the championship.
When they met in the 2010/11 season, the game changed on a substitution on the hour mark.
Luciano Becchio came off the bench to notch a seventeen-minute hat trick for Leeds between the 66th and 83rd minutes in a 3-1 win.
Last season, Leeds had to rely on a late winner from Ross McCormack to secure all three points.
Adam Clayton had fired Leeds into an early lead only for former midfielder Neil Kilkenny to restore parity inside the opening fifteen minutes.
The game looked to be heading for a draw until Ross McCormack pounced from close range.
