Leeds play host to Northampton Town at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. Of the two previous meetings, the Whites have won one and drawn one.
The last time the two teams met at Leeds was way back in the black-and-white days of October 1965, with United annihilating their visitors 6-1 in a First Division match.
