Head to Head





































Leeds (United)

Stadium: Elland Road

Played 34 - 17th in Prem on 38 pts
Manager: Peter Reid
(Mar '03
)

Games: 4 - W 25%, D 50%, L 25%
  • NOT WON IN 3 HOME PREMIERSHIP GAMES [1 draw, 2 losses]
  • 1 win in 8 League and Cup games
  • Won 1 of last 7 League games
  • Lost 5 of last 7 top flight encounters
  • Scored in each of the last six League games
  • Scored two goals in each of the last two
  • Not managed a clean sheet in 9 - 7 in Prem
  • A "must-win" game for fourth bottom Leeds against a Fulham side, invigorated by the appointment of Chris Coleman as caretaker manager.
  • The Leeds players will be reeling from the lashing tongue of temporary boss Peter Reid, who was less than pleased with their 3-2 losing performance at Southampton on Saturday when Alan Smith was needlessly sent off again. It leaves the west Yorkshire club immediately above the Premiership trap door, three points above West Ham with four to play and a game in hand on the Hammers.
  • Leeds have won once in eight League and Cup games, and once in seven Premiership matches, five of which they've lost. They have scored in the last six top flight games, but have gone seven League games since keeping a clean sheet.
  • Leeds are in danger of finishing in their lowest ever Premiership position. They've not finished outside the top five in five years, and their current spot of 17th equals their lowest placing registered in the opening Premier League season of 1992-93.
  • Leeds still have to face Blackburn at Elland Road next Saturday, go to Arsenal on 4 May and entertain Aston Villa on 11 May.

  • GONE 5 GAMES SINCE KEEPING A CLEAN SHEET - all Prem
  • Fulham overcame a three match losing run and the loss of sacked manager Jean Tigana, to win 2-1 at home to Newcastle on Saturday. That leaves them two places and three points ahead of Leeds, three places and six points above the danger line.
  • Fulham's victory over the Magpies was their first in five games, and the double strike their first goals in four League starts. They've gone five since a clean sheet.
  • The Cottagers have lost their last three on the road to Burnley in the FA Cup Fifth Round Replay, Manchester United and Liverpool in the League. They've drawn four and lost nine Premiership games on their travels since a 0-3 win at Sunderland on 14 September - their only away League win of the season.
  • Fulham are in 15th, two places lower than the 13th they managed last season - their first in this League.
  • Martin Djetou scored the only goal in the reverse fixture in December. Fulham are now hoping to make Leeds the second club they've 'doubled' this season.
  • Fulham are away to Chelsea on Saturday. The last two matches are against Everton (h, 3 May) and Charlton (a, 11 May).

Head to Head

  • It's only Fulham's second visit to Leeds over 17 years.
  • Defeat in last season's corresponding fixture ended Leeds' six match unbeaten home run against the Cottagers.
  • Fulham have lost three of their last four trips to Elland Road and failed to score on each occasion.
  • But both the Londoners two victories from their last eight League trips to Elland Road have been by a 0-1 margin.
  • No player has ever been sent off in this corresponding fixture.
  • Fulham are on target to complete a first 'double' over Leeds 43 years and third over them since League hostilities began in 1920.
