Leeds United play host to Blackburn Rovers at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Whites are clearly on top, having won 25 and lost only 8 of the 44 games.

The last time the two teams met at Leeds United was back in October 2003, over five years ago, the Whites carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Premiership match.
