Leeds lost 3-0 to Middlesbrough at the weekend and the low point was this comical own goal from their defender Giuseppe Bellusci.

Bellusci's hapless attempted clearance sees him become part of a rich history of amazing own goals from Leeds players. Sadly Gary Sprake's famous example of his 'careless hands' in front of the Anfield Kop is not on YouTube, but here are three own goals that were worse than Bellusci's.

3. Alex Mowatt v Derby - 2014

You don’t need to have a long memory to remember this one from Mowatt against Derby last season.

2. Alan Smith v Wolves - 2003

Never the most prolific of strikers, it's a shame that Smith didn't save this effort for the other end.

1. Gordon Strachan v Liverpool - 1992

Finally we have the king of Leeds United own goals, Gordon Strachan's mesmersing effort in the Charity Shield against Liverpool  (skip to 8.05 to see).
