FA Cup history: Sutton United 1-0 Leeds United. Report, photos and SUFC TV coverage

29 January 2017

Sutton are in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

That unprecedented statement follows a magnificent performance at a packed Gander Green Lane today as U's outplayed Leeds United and were worth victory by far more than the Jamie Collins penalty seven minutes after half time.

Only two superb saves by Leeds goalkeeper Marco Silvestre and the most marginal of offside decisions denied Roarie Deacon a first half hat trick, and it was Deacon who was fouled for the penalty which Collins nervelessly converted.

Leeds, who had skipper Liam Cooper sent off for a second yellow card near the end, never threatened an equaliser as U's were able to celebrate a famous victory.
