History of the Leeds United v Southend United fixture

Leeds prepare to entertain Southend United at Elland Road on Tuesday evening, with high hopes of improving on their excellent record against the opposition, having managed to conjure up a win from 2 of the previous 3 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Elland Road was just last season, in August 2007, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-1 thriller, in a League One match.

Recent respective form guides

Leeds United have managed to pick up just two wins from their last six home games, losing three. The goals for column just outweighs the goals against over this period, 10 to 9.

The away form of Southend is pretty dire, managing a paltry 2 draws from the last six matches. The Shrimpers have conceded 13 goals in these games, and only hit 3 in reply.

Leeds lie just outside the play-off positions in the Coca-Cola League One, picking up 42 points from their 26 games so far. Southend find themselves struggling down in 16th position in the league having picked up 31 points from their 26 matches.

FootyMad's prediction ...

The current home form displayed by Leeds is obviously none too clever but with the current standing of Southend, I firmly believe this match can only produce a victory for the Whites. Home Win
