Comments:

League position: 18th Manager Uwe Rosler was sacked two days after this game after 11 league games in charge. It meant Leeds United were looking for their sixth manager / head coach since owner Massimo Cellino's arrival in April 2014. This defeat created a new club record of 11 consecutive home league games without a win. The previous record of ten games was set between 6 February 1982 and 12 May 1982 which led to relegation from the top division under Allan Clarke. Having already used their three substitutes, United were reduced to ten men after 85 minutes when Liam Cooper was forced to leave the field of play due to injury.

Comments:

League position: 1st Having re-joined the club two months earlier, this was Bobby Zamora's first goal for Brighton & Hove Albion since 4 May 2003 in a 2-2 draw at Grimsby Town in League Division 1.
