Just the tonic the win over Wigan, now lets see if we can double up at home to Watford!

Here's some Watford stats to get your teeth into:

Up until season 88-89, we had never met Watford in a league fixture! Below are the home league results against the Hornets since then.

Season 88-89 Leeds 0-1 Watford - Peter Gunby incharge following the sacking of Billy Bremner

Season 89-90 Leeds 2-1 Watford, Fairclough, A Williams. – Chris Turner debut

Season 99-00 Leeds 3-1 Watford Bridges, Duberry, Huckerby – Duberrys first goal for Leeds

Season 04-05 Leeds 2-2 Watford Wright, Carlisle

Season 05-06 Leeds 2-1 Watford Blake 2 (1P), Watford ended up with 9 Men!

Season 10-11 Leeds 2-2 Watford Becchio, Deeney OG

Season 11-12 Leeds 0-2 Watford

Season 12-13 Leeds 1-6 Watford – least said about that the better!

Amazingly since 05-06, there has been four red cards in this fixture! Ben Foster and Darius Henderson saw red in our 2-1 win on St Valentines day 2006, Paul Connolly had an early bath in March 2012 and Jason Pearce was also saw red last season! Lets hope for a clean game tomorrow!

So the visitors will be coming to Elland Road looking for their third straight win at LS11.
