Leeds can earn replay with Spurs

Two late goals at St Andrews helped Leeds set up a cracking FA Cup fourth round tie with Tottenham at Elland Road. Spurs made light work of Coventry in a comfortable 3-0 victory, but Andre Villas-Boas will be expecting a far tougher test in Yorkshire on Sunday.

The clubs last met in the 2009/10 campaign for an FA Cup tie in which Spurs prevailed. Leeds did earn a replay though after drawing 2-2 in the first match – they lost the replay 3-1 on the back of a hat-trick from Jermain Defoe.

Tottenham and Leeds also met in the same competition in 1998/99 and the Yorkshire club forced a replay on that occasion too.

Spurs’ last away game was at Loftus Road and they could only manage a goalless draw with relegation threatened QPR.
