Two goals in two minutes took the wind out of City’s sails after an hour’s monopoly at Elland Road this afternoon.
Up to the 62nd minute City had outplayed a Leeds side who were looking pale shadows of a once great team . But first, McNivern and then the virtually unknown Harris showed Leeds more experienced stars the way home, and the Blues were up against it.
City’s grip had looked firm with Keegan, Bell and Hartford, particularly impressive. Royle and Tueart were busy up front and there was solidarity at the back with Booth and Doyle letting little past them.
McNivern’s goal was a turning point, but full marks to City, they continued to show tremendous character and aggression in their valiant efforts to improve their abysmal away record.

  1. My first ever game at Elland Road. My first ever game was the 1972 cup final when i just liked the team that was all white! From that day leeds united were my team and have and always will be.

  2. After being taken loads of times to both Millmoor and Oakwell, this was also my first trip to Elland Road. Stood on the Lowfields and never looked back.

  3. This was my first ever game at Elland road. My Dad took me and I can still remember the noise of the crowd, such a wonderful day for an 11 year old. My Dad then took me to the FAC semi final the following year against Man utd, which sadly we lost. Fantastic memories MOT

  4. Also my first ever game at Elland Road.
    I was 7 years old and cried at half time because we were losing.
    Dad said I was mesmerised by the Kop and was watching/listening to them more than the game!
    We were in the West Stand.Great memories and been Leeds ever since.
