Leeds play host to Peterborough United at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The Whites won the only previous game contested between the two.
The only previous meeting between Leeds and Peterborough at Elland Road was amazingly over twenty years ago, in October 1988, with Leeds running out comfortable 3-1 winners in a League Cup match.

Nothing seems to be going right for the Whites at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Posh come away with an easy victory. Away win
