Ahead of Saturday's game against Sheffield United, the club is paying tribute to the former goalscorer and late fans.

Leeds United legend and record goalscorer Peter Lorimer died on March 20 after battling a long term illness, with Saturday's Yorkshire derby marking the Whites' first game since.

Monday April 5 also marks 21 years since two Leeds United supporters, Christopher Loftus and Kevin Speight, travelled to Turkey to watch their team in action but never returned home.
