*In 2010, Leeds United clinched promotion to the championship on a dramatic final day at Elland Road. Leeds needed a win to guarantee promotion and it all looked to be going terribly wrong early in the second half. Max Gradel had already been sent off and now they trailed 1-0.

Jonny Howson came off the bench to pull Leeds level and Jermaine Beckford scored the winner soon afterwards as Elland Road erupted.
