Last league meeting: Leeds United 2, Norwich City 1 (19 October, 2009): As the game moved into injury time and City looked headed for a deserved point, on-loan keeper Fraser Forster made a complete hash of a goal kick. The ball went only as far as Beckford, who headed goalwards and made no mistake to put Leeds back on top of League One. City deserved at least a point against a side which just doesn't lose games at home - unless it's against Liverpool. It was Grant Holt's 10th goal of the season which looked like securing the point after Bradley Johnson put the home side ahead. And when Forster made a magnificent one-handed save from the usually lethal Beckford, who then stabbed one wide from close in, it was the travelling City fans who were rejoicing. But then fate intervened and dealt City a cruel, cruel blow.

City connection: Midfielder Andy Hughes was at Carrow Road for two seasons before joining Leeds in August, 2007.
