In October 1988, with the team 21st in the Second Division, Bremner was fired to make way for Howard Wilkinson, who oversaw their promotion back to the First Division in 1989-90. Under Wilkinson Leeds finished 4th in 1990-91 and in 1991-92 seasons Leeds won the title. However, 1992-93 seasons saw Leeds exiting the Champions League in the early stages, and eventually finishing 17th in the League, narrowly avoiding relegation. Wilkinson's Leeds were unable to provide any consistent challenge for honors, and his position was not helped by a poor display in the 1996 League Cup final which Leeds lost to Aston Villa.

Leeds could only finish 13th in 1995-96, and after a 4-0 home defeat by Manchester United early in 1996-97, Wilkinson had his contract terminated. One of the legacies of Wilkinson and youth coach Paul Hart was the development of Leeds United's youth academy, and as a result, the academy has produced numerous talented footballers over the years.
