Vital Leeds looks at the head-to-head record between Leeds United and Derby County ahead of the game at Elland Road on Easter Monday.

The two sides will be meeting for the 52nd time at Elland Road. Leeds have a fantastic home record in these encounters with 32 wins to Derby`s 8 and 11 being drawn, although they have now lost the last two.

The first ever meeting came during the 1921/22 season when Leeds won a Second Division encounter 2-1.

Leeds biggest win came during the 1972/73 season when goals from Johnny Giles (2),Allan Clarke, Billy Bremner and Peter Lorimer secured a 5-0 win.

Derby enjoyed their biggest win in the 1938/39 season when they won 4-1.

One of the most amazing games between the two came on November 7th 1997.

Under the leadership of George Graham Leeds weren`t renowned for entertaining football, but on this day the faithful went home having seen tremendous team spirit, to see the side come from 3-0 down after just 33 minutes to come away with all three points in a thrilling 4-3 win with an injury time winner.

Two goals from Dean Sturridge and a penalty from Aljosa Asanovic looked like taking the points back down the M1 to Derby, as some Leeds fans were already contemplating getting home early.

By half time Leeds had reduced to deficit to 3-2 thanks to goals from Rod Wallace and superb strike by Harry Kewell.

In the second half Leeds totally dominated the game as they searched for an equaliser.

With just eight minutes remaining, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink scored from the spot to set up a grandstand finish.

Just as it looked like both sides were going to have to settle for a point Lee Bowyer stepped up to smash the ball home in front of the Kop and lift the roof off the famous old stand.

The two sides last met at Elland Road on the opening day last season when Derby brought to an end Leeds long unbeaten run on the opening day of the season.

Leeds had not tasted defeat on the opening days since 1990 but goals by Kris Commons and Rob Hulse sandwiched a goal by Luciano Becchio as Derby won 2-1.

Leeds come into this clash having lost the last six encounters between the two including a 1-0 defeat at Pride Park on Boxing Day.
