    • Tottenham Hotspur
    • Leeds United
    • 90+7' The final whistle goes, and somehow Leeds will be welcoming Spurs to Elland Road for the replay! An astonishing result.
    • 90+6' GOAL!! Cracking penalty from Beckford - right into the top corner out of Gomes's reach! The Leeds FA Cup fairytale will have another chapter!
    • 90+5' PENALTY!! After that great tackle, Dawson brings Beckford down and Leeds have one final shot at staying in the competition! Beckford will take...

    • 90+1' Hutton desperately slides in and fouls Beckford as he gallops forward and gets a yellow card.
    • 89' White looks lively and it takes an alert Dawson to come across and stop his progress down the left.

    • 85' Bale 's cross hits Bromby when he could have pulled back for Pavlyuchenko or Keane.

    • 81' Leeds boss Simon Grayson has played his cards close to his chest, but now he brings on Luciano Becchio in place of Michael Doyle.
    • 79' Kilkenny steals the ball from Defoe just as the triker was set to charge forward.
    • 78' Leeds are not perturbed though, and Kilkenny storms down the left. Hutton does well to concede a throw-in rather than a corner.
