The nominations were:

Sheffield United 2-3 Leeds United (1992) - A dramatic Yorkshire derby victory paved the way for Leeds to claim the league title later that day.

Bournemouth 0-1 Leeds United (1990) - Eight years in the second division came to an end on a blazing hot Bank Holiday weekend at Bournemouth.

Leeds United 7-0 Southampton (1972) - Dubbed as one of the greatest team performances of its time, including a memorable spell of passing.

Leeds United 2-1 Bristol Rovers (2010) - A promotion winning game that had it all. Leeds had a man sent off and came from behind before local hero Jonny Howson stepped off the bench to equalise, and captain Jermaine Beckford, playing his final game for the club, then scored the winner.

Leeds United 4 - 5 Liverpool (1991) - An amazing second-half comeback from 5-1 down against the greatest team of that time saw Leeds lamenting a late disallowed goal.
