Leeds United vs Bournemouth: Stat Preview

Charlie Crowhurst

Andrew Dalton previews our game against Bournemouth, let's hope this time we can get a win.

So the annual horrible trip to the Den continued on Saturday, one goal in four games, three defeats (four inc cup) = relegation form to me! Something needs to change and very very quickly!

On to our first visit from Bournemouth since 2008 and hopefully a change in fortune for the Whites.

Have a read of these:

The cry out for a striker has never been more potent, then if you look back just 12 months under a certain Neil Warnock, and after nine league games last year, we had scored 17 goals and a certain Luciano Becchio had scored seven of those goals.

At present we have only scored seven league goals this season, with Ross McCormack top scoring with three, followed by Luke Varney with two and one each for new signings Luke Murphy and Matt Smith. Desperate times indeed.

Tomorrow night will be only the fifth time that the Cherries have visited Elland Road for a League fixture. We have a 100 % record against them at Elland Road:

Season 87-88 won 3-2 Taylor, Swan, Rennie

Season 88-89 Won 3-0 Shutt got all three

Season 89-90 won 3-0 Baird, Strachan (p) Fairclough,

Season 07-08 won 2-0 Johnson, Kilkenny

September blues:

It may not be Autumn yet, but our defeat in South London on Saturday meant we have only won one game in the month of September out of four (cup not included). Looking back through the years, this is our worst return of wins, since 2006/07 when we also won only one league game, that season we played five games. Take a look back of our form in September since relegation from the top flight in 2004:

04/05 – two wins from five

05/06 – two wins from five

06/07 – one win from five

07/08 – four wins from five

08/09 – four wins from four

09/10 – three wins from five

10/11 – two wins from five

11/12 – two wins from three

12/13 – two wins from five

Which leads me onto October. Lets take a lot at our stats in October from 2004/05

04/05 - one win from five

05/06 - two wins from five

06/07 - one win from five

07/08 - four wins from five

08/09 - three wins from six

09/10 - three wins from five

10/11 - two wins from five

11/12 - three wins from six

12/13 - two wins from five
