Despite the euphoria that followed Leeds United’s 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion yesterday, the club have set a new record for the lowest amount of home wins in a season.
Leeds are sitting 17th in the table following yesterday’s draw with Brighton, moving out of the relegation zone after defeats for Burnley and Everton.
However, the threat of dropping back into the EFL remains for Jesse Marsch’s side, largely owing to a poor home record at Elland Road.
As per @LUFCDATA, Leeds have recorded just four home wins this season, which is the worst return in the club’s history.
Those wins have come against Watford, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Norwich City.
Since Marsch took charge of Leeds in late February, he’s overseen just one of those victories, with the other three coming on Marcelo Bielsa’s watch.
Who goes down?
Leeds’ record at Elland Road has been poor and the club haven’t managed to turn home turf into the fortress it can be.
Had Leeds’ record at Elland Road been better, they would have been comfortably clear of trouble.
There were dropped points to Southampton, Leicester, Brentford and West Ham all from winning positions; a win in any of those games would’ve made this season look a lot better than it has been.
In saying that, Leeds have also been poor away from home and have the same amount of wins.
Heading to Brentford next week, then, they will be hoping to get that elusive fifth win on their travels to keep them in the division.
