LUFC On This Day - August 14th

A look back at what happened at Leeds United on August 14th in recent history.

Results on this day

1968 Queens Park Rangers (h) W 4-1 Division One
1971 Manchester City (a) W 1-0 Division One
1993 Manchester City (a) D 1-1 Premiership
1999 Manchester United (a) L 0-2 Premiership
2004 Wolverhampton Wanderers (a) D 0-0 Championship
2007 Macclesfield Town (a) W 1-0 League Cup


2004
Leeds draw 0-0 at Wolverhampton Wanderers in their third game of the season to leave Leeds with four points from a possible nine.

Michael Duberry is sent off for his second bookable offence late in the game.


2008
Ian Westlake scores the only goal of the game as Leeds win 1-0 at Macclesfield in the first round of the Carling Cup.


2009
Defender Patrick Kisnorbo earns the distinction of being the 100th Leeds player to play international football whilst on the books at Elland Road.

Kisnorbo played in Australia`s friendly at Republic of Ireland and he is one of seven internationals currently at the club.


2011
Leeds United boss Simon Grayson was left baffled after seeing both John Howson sent off in the home defeat to Middlesbrough.

Middlesbrough player Tony McMahon was also shown a red card in a game that was never a physical contest and was spoilt by card happy referee Anthony Taylor.

Speaking in the Yorkshire Post, Grayson said, 'I don`t know what words to describe it.
'Everybody is referring to a few of the decisions. It amazes you at times. You have 20-odd thousand here, a passionate local derby, two players go for a 50-50, not over the top or anything like that, and they`re both yellow-carded which puts them both on the back foot.
'Neither of them went over the top and then Max makes a rash challenge. He then decides to even it up by sending off Tony McMahon which I don`t think was another yellow card, and then the second sending-off absolutely baffled me.'

2012
Leeds trip to Hull City on Saturday December 29th will now kick off at the earlier time of 12.30pm.

The move now means that all four of Leeds away games in December will have early kick offs.
