Instead, they will have to settle for an unbeaten start after a less-than-inspiring goalless draw.
Here, Sports Mole takes a closer look to see if the result was fair.

Was the result fair?
Yes, both teams lacked a cutting edge and neither did enough to win. Leeds will be the happier of the two teams.
The word 'laboured' springs to mind. Much of the game was played in midfield, but their passing lacked any threat or penetration. Jamie Vardy and David Nugent had to feed off scraps all afternoon. They enjoyed some late pressure but Nigel Pearson will expect more from his team. Their defence was very solid though, as Leeds often looked to counter. Not once did they get caught short at the back.
Leeds did what they had to do. They shut down Leicester's more creative players and looked to counter. But it was going forward where their problem lay this afternoon. Ross McCormack and Luke Varney were lively enough, but lacked an end product. Like their opponents, they looked solid at the back. Defences were definitely on top this afternoon.
There were plenty of fouls but none was nasty or particularly dangerous. Keith Stroud let play flow as much as he could, and there were no outrageous decisions.
Sports Mole's man of the match
Rudolph Austin: The returning captain was a big presence in midfield for the visitors today, doing an excellent job of protecting the back four.
With no real 'gaffes' to pick from, this one will have to go to Jason Pearce for his miss four minutes into the game. The centre-half stayed up after a corner and got his head on the end of Noel Hunt's cross, but put it over the bar. A bit harsh, maybe. But it was the best chance of the game.
Leicester: The Foxes travel to Pride Park next Saturday to take on Derby County in an East Midlands Derby.
Leeds: The Whites welcome Sheffield Wednesday to Elland Road for what is always a keenly-contested Yorkshire Derby.
