This page is dedicated to the greatest comeback wins in Leeds United history. From an unforgettable 4-3 comeback win at St. Mary's from 0-3 down to our latest stunning Premier League comeback from 0-2 down to beat Wolves 3-2 at Molineux under Jesse Marsch.


Below is a record of every single Leeds comeback victory across all competitions going back to the start of the 1979/80 season. 

In the Premier League, Leeds have recovered from being 0-3 down on just one occasion in a 4-3 Premier League win v Derby County at Elland Road on November 8th 1997 after having trailed by three goals in the opening 33 minutes.

The last occasion Leeds found themselves 0-3 down to win a match was in a 3-4 Championship victory at St. Mary's on November 19th 2005 having trailed 0-3 at half-time.

Leeds have come back to win from a two-goal deficit on four occasions in the Premier League (4-3 home win v Derby in Nov 1997, 3-2 away win v Barnsley in November 1997, 4-3 home win v Liverpool in November 2000, and a 3-2 away win v Wolves in March 2022).

The last time Leeds secured consecutive comeback wins was in December 2018 with Championship victories over Aston Villa (2-3 from two goals down at Villa Park) and Blackburn (3-2 win at Elland Road).

Leeds' remarkable comeback 3-2 Boxing Day victory over Blackburn on December 26th 2018 at Elland Road was the only occasion in the club's history in which we had scored two goals in 90+ minutes to win a league match through Kemar Roofe (90+1', 90+4').

Leeds last secured three consecutive comeback victories across all competitions between August and September 1999 under David O' Leary (2-1 win at Tottenham, a 4-3 win at Coventry and a 3-1 UEFA Cup win over Partizan Belgrade).

Leeds' last comeback victory came in a 2-1 victory over Wolves at Elland Road on August 6th 2022. Our last 90th+ minute winner in a comeback victory came in a 3-2 Premier League victory over Wolves at Molineux courtesy of Luke Ayling's 91st minute winner after having trailed 0-2 at half-time. This was also the first time that Leeds won a Premier League match having trailed by 2+ goals at half-time having lost on all previous 47 occasions.
