Leeds vs. Tottenham: FA Cup 4th Round Live Score, Highlights, Recap
Elland Road, Leeds
Leeds 2-1 Tottenham
Another English Premier League giant fell on Sunday afternoon as Elland Road hosted a cup cracker.
Neil Warnock's Leeds put in a gritty, obturate performance to deny Andre Villas-Boas' star-studded team and survived a late fightback.
Ross McCormack was a nifty menace up front all game long and he, along with Luke Varney, scored goals at pivotal times to give the home crowd belief.
Clint Dempsey scored what proved to be a consolation goal with a stunning looped header, but Spurs head back to London deflated and disappointed.
FULL TIME! LEEDS 2-1 SPURS!
90+4'—The last chance of the game will be a free kick from the right side of the box for Spurs.
90+3'—Leeds burning their subs, just one minute to go for them to hold on.
89'—WHAT A CHANCE!
Assou-Ekotto fires a ball in behind the defence and Obika is through!
He brings it down but under immense pressure, fires over!
87'—Bale provides a microcosm of Spurs' wretched performance by firing in a poor cross. It falls straight to Ashdown and Leeds launch a counter.
85'—Caulker slices a clearance horribly wide and out for a throw. Sums up the England international's bad day.
83'—Leeds are trying to see this out, Spurs pressing desperately. The ball seems to be falling to Parker more of than not though, and the holding midfielder isn't able to create the goal AVB's side need.
80'—Spurs are looking to play with quickness now as they sense time slipping away.
Obika surges forwards but fails to release the ball to Bale—more disappointment.
77'—Wonderful build up play sees Spurs sear down the right, but the final ball required is supplied by Scott Parker and it's simply not good enough. It ends up bouncing off Obika and out for a goal kick.
74'—McCormack has been such a lively threat this game. He's causing havoc in the Spurs' penalty area again but eventually it comes to nothing.
70'—Action at both ends!
Dembele fires wide after a wonderful turn from Bale, then McCormack is released one on one but Friedel saves.
69'—Tottenham's goal is under a severe amount of pressure at the moment.
McCormack and Diouf are working well together on the right. It's fair to say Assou-Ekotto is struggling.
66'—Spurs have made their final change, replacing Kyle Naughton with Kyle Walker. Let's hope no injuries take place else AVB is down to 10 men.
62'—As Spurs search for a second goal, they've brought on Dembele and Obika. The midfield looked a little lost without their Belgian star, while this represents a huge chance for Obika.
More on the goal
Bale sprints down the left and fires in a wonderful near-post cross.
Dempsey is there to send a looping header into the far corner—Ashdown has absolutely no chance!
GOAL! SPURS GET ONE BACK!
Lennon fires in a lovely cross from the right byline and it falls to Demspey in the box. He doesn't expect the ball to fall for him and he fires wide. Should have been a goal with over half the net unattended.
More on the goal
Shocking defending from Spurs. Diouf sends McCormack through on the right side and he (predictably) cuts inside to flummox Caulker. His shot pierces the top left corner on the net. Superb strike.
GOAL! WHAT A GOAL!
LEEDS 2-0 SPURS!
46'—Immediate danger for Spurs as Leeds whip in a corner. Only a mis-kick stops McCormack having a clear chance on goal.
45'—Back on the field, we've kicked off. No changes for either side but Spurs need a little something. Dembele, perhaps?
Leeds 1-0 Spurs
44'—Golden chance for Leeds before the break!
Route one stuff as the Whites win a knock down and Friedel saves from McCormack 1v1!
42'—A late Leeds counter is dealt with efficiently by Caulker, and Spurs continue to press for an equaliser before half time
40'—Neat interplay between Diouf and Varney sees Leeds enter Spurs' box, but Caulker is there to see off the danger.
