Sam Allardyce's survival record gallery as Leeds United seek new help in relegation scrap

Leeds United are turning to Sam Allardyce in the club’s desperate scrap for Premier League survival and the 68-year-old has an impressive track record when it comes to keeping teams up.

Fourth-bottom Leeds are only outside of the division’s drop zone on goal difference following Sunday’s 4-1 defeat at Bournemouth in interim head coach Javi Gracia’s 11th league game in charge. With just four games left, Leeds are now expected to announce the appointment of Allardyce on a short-term deal until the end of the season, replacing Gracia in the dug out. But can ‘Big Sam’ do it again?

Here, we run through Allardyce’s survival record and his managerial history in full, from Blackpool al the way through to West Brom. Leeds are back in action this weekend with a Saturday afternoon trip to long odds-on title favourites Manchester City.
