Elland Road crowd helping Daniel Farke create fortress as Leeds United record emerges

Leeds United produced another dominant display in front of their own fans, with 36,813 packing into Elland Road to watch the match against Huddersfield Town.

According to Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Lee Sobot, that figure is a season-high. The hosts won the Championship clash 4-1 on Saturday (28 October) thanks to doubles from wingers Daniel James and Crysencio Summerville.

The three points may keep Leeds in third place, but they represent a very positive statistic, with the Whites now boasting four successive home victories.

According to Sky Bet, it is the club’s best run since 2020, with Daniel Farke also overseeing home wins against Watford, QPR and Bristol City.

Of course away wins are also needed if the Whites are to have any hope of keeping up with Leicester City and Ipswich Town, who are flying high in first and second place in the table respectively.

Leeds left the likes of Southampton and Stoke City having been on the receiving end of disappointing losses, which is an issue that Farke will be desperate to fix in the coming months.

But for now the manager can take plenty of confidence for his side’s record at home, which will absolutely delight the Leeds faithful, particularly after their misery in the Premier League last time out.

Farke will appreciate the efforts of his players this time around, but the man in the dugout will also make a lot of time for the supporters, who really have pushed the team on at important times this season.

In other Leeds United news, an unusual clause not possible in one country has been used on one Whites loanee, with a permanent exit now on the cards.
