*On this day in 1956, almost 50,000 fans turned up at Elland Road to watch Leeds beat Bristol Rovers 2-1 in their final home game of the season. The win was a fourth in a row for Leeds and wins in their last two away games meant they finished runners-up to Sheffield Wednesday in the Second Division and earned promotion to the top-flight.

**On this day in 1973, Leeds beat Crystal Palace 4-0 at Elland Road as they played their third of eleven games in 36-days. Leeds were to win just once more in the league, a 6-1 win over Arsenal, as fatigue, an unbelievable goalkeeping performance at Wembley and a bribed referee in Greece saw Leeds drop out of the race for the league title as well as losing the FA Cup and European Cup Winners Cup Finals.

1978 Jacob Burns (39)
1982 Enoch Showunmi (35)
