History of the Leeds United v Carlisle United fixture

Leeds prepare to entertain Carlisle United at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Whites are clearly on top, with a 57% success rate in the fixture.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Elland Road was less than a year ago, in May 2008, with Carlisle inflicting a narrow 2-1 defeat upon the Whites in a Football League Play-Offs (Lvl 3) match.

FootyMad's prediction ...

It's not been a very profitable last few weeks for Leeds and I'm afraid the Footymad team cannot see it getting too much better here. Look no further than honours being even at the end of this one. Score draw
