Michael Ricketts scored his first goal for Leeds as they edged past Swindon 1-0 in the Carling Cup.
Premiership survivor Gary Kelly lofted a neat ball over the Swindon defence in the ninth minute for Ricketts to beat goalkeeper Rhys Evans one-on-one.
Both sides had their chances but the Robins should have equalised just after the break when Sam Parkin shot wide.
Late on, Sean O'Hanlon and Brian Howard went close for the Robins and Brian Deane missed for Leeds.
