A look back at what happened on this day May 9th in the history of Leeds United.

A Peter Lorimer hat-trick, two from Joe Jordan and one from Billy Bremner helped third-placed Leeds to a 6-1 win over the First Division runners-up.

**On this day in 1995, Leeds finished their home campaign with a 3-1 win against Crystal Palace. Two goals from Tony Yeboah and one from David Wetherall ensured Leeds kept up their pursuit of a European place the following season.
