Leeds have a fairly decent record when playing away to Charlton Athletic.
There’ve been 23 competitive matches played between the two teams at Charlton. In those 23 games Leeds have won a total of 11 (a 48% percentage), Charlton have been victorious in 10 (44%) whilst there has been an even result on just 2 occasions (8%).
Overall, competitively in 47 games, Leeds have won 23 (49%), Charlton 15 (32%) and there’ve been 9 draws (19%). In the 47 games 121 goals have been scored, Leeds scoring 67 (1.43 per game) with Charlton bagging 54 (1.15 per game).
Leeds’ biggest win was back in the 2003/2004 season where they went to The Valley and scored 6 – oh how I’d like that to happen tomorrow.. A Mark Viduka hat-trick was the highlight of the day with Harry Kewell (2) and Ian Harte getting United’s other goals. Meanwhile Charlton’s biggest victory also came at their home ground, scoring 5 without reply back in the 1946/1947 season.
Most older fans will remember a vital game back in the ’86/87 season, with Leeds in division 2, and Charlton in division 1 (finishing third bottom, thus going into a play-off). After two legs the sides could not be separated. A third leg was played in a neutral stadium – St. Andrews, Birmingham – again the sides couldn’t be separated during 90 minutes. Extra time was played, John Sheridan put Leeds in front after 99 minutes but Peter Shirtliff broke the Whites’ hearts, scoring in the 113th and 117th minute.
