A look back at what happened on this day May 17th in the history of Leeds United.


1947 Grimsby Town A L 1-4 Division 1
1979 Liverpool H L 0-3 Division 1
*1987 Oldham Athletic A L 1-2 Division Two Play Off after extra time, 90 minutes 1-0, aggregate 2-2, Leeds United won on away goals rule

1974 Eddie Lewis (43)
1978 Paddy Kenny (39)

*On this day in 1987, Leeds travelled to Oldham for the second leg of their Division Two play-off with a slender 1-0 lead thanks to a Keith Edwards goal.

Oldham looked to be progressing through to the final with just seconds remaining when they went 2-0 ahead on the night but once again, that man Edwards scored for Leeds and with no further goals in extra-time, Leeds went through to the final on away goals.
