As we nervously await tomorrow’s crucial clash at the Valley, I thought I’d take a look back at better days for Leeds United.

A little over 26,000 people attended one of the most one-sided matches ever witnessed at the Valley as three goals either side of the break, including a hat trick from Mark Viduka, led to an emphatic 1-6 defeat for Charlton and a great victory for Leeds.

It was a rare win for Peter Reid’s side, but did help Leeds United delay the inevitable as they eventually finished the season in 15th, only to be relegated the year after.

Final score: Charlton Athletic 1-6 Leeds United
5th April, 2003. The Valley, London.


Leeds United goals: Kewell (12, 76), Harte (34 pen), Viduka (42, 53, 56 pen)
