Richard Naylor scores the only goal on his 450th league appearance when he prods home from close range. Watford never really threaten an equaliser in a fairly drab game in which new signing Ross McCormack comes on for his Leeds debut.

Leeds hit back in the second half when Naylor's header is saved and Bradley Johnson smashes home before Luciano Becchio scores from close range to make it 2-1. Swansea press for an equaliser with Allen going close but the home side see the game out.

Leeds score first and last at Oakwell but are torn apart in the Yorkshire derby. Howson's fine strike puts the away side in front before debutant Garry O'Connor levels after an error by Federico Bessone. Becchio almost restores the lead but then Barnsley take control. O'Brien, Arismendi, a Collins own goal and Hammill make it 5-1. Shane Higgs produces some fine saves to deny Hammill and Butterfield before Somma's consolation.

Unused subs: Brown, Naylor, Faye, Sam, Becchio

Referee: A. Woolmer

Simon Grayson rings the changes after the horror show on Tuesday night as Leeds take a point from the Keepmoat Stadium. An entertaining game sees both sides hit the woodwork during the first half and Somma has an effort ruled out for offside with 15 minutes remaining.

SATURDAY 25th SEPTEMBER 2010

Referee: A. Taylor

A disappointing game comes to life in the closing stages as Leeds return to winning ways. Bradley Johnson settles a game of few chances with seven minutes to go but both sides finish with ten men. Snodgrass is sent off for two bookings after coming on to replace Lloyd Sam and Blades sub Jamie Ward also sees red for a reckless tackle on Neil Kilkenny. The visitors come close to an equaliser in injury time when Johnny Ertl's header hits the woodwork.

Unused subs: Arestidou, McLaughlin, Wright, Parry, Mayor

Referee: N. Miller

Leeds throw away a 4-1 lead and lose 4-6 in one of the most bizarre games ever seen at Elland Road. Jon Parkin gives Preston an early lead before headers from Luciano Becchio and Alex Bruce put Leeds in front. David Somma scores a brace but Parkin grabs another as Leeds go in at half time with a 4-2 lead. In an even crazier second half, Keith Treacy scores direct from a corner and Callum Davidson levels from the spot after Bruce brings down Iain Hulme. Preston then take the lead when Parkin completes his hat-trick and Hulme heads a sixth to complete a remarkable comeback.

Referee: K. Hill

Once again Simon Grayson makes changes but Leeds lose in East Anglia. Jason Scotland rounds Shane Higgs to score the opener and then misses a glorious chance to make it 2-0. Higgs goes off injured and is replaced by Jason Brown who makes his Leeds debut. Robert Snodgrass levels but then Alex Bruce sees red before Tommy Smith is left unmarked to convert a Carlos Edwards cross to win the game for the home side.

Referee: C. Foy

Luciano Becchio scores a stunning winner ten minutes after Kris Boyd pulls the hosts level. Davide Somma converts a deflected Sanchez Watt cross to give Leeds a deserved lead. Boyd equalises before Becchio's sensational volley. The Argentine also hits the bar near the end as Boro are booed off by the home crowd.
