Howard Wilkinson will be remembered for the glory and pride by a generation of the Elland Road faithful who watched the club's rise to become First Division champions.

Wilko was appointed in October 1988 and was in charge for 400 games - with a win rate of 43.25 per cent - during an eight year stint which also saw the club win promotion from the Second Division in 1989/90.
