Leeds’ opponents for the next round of the FA Cup have tonight been revealed after an astonishing turn-around in the tie. Sutton United came back from 1-0 down away at AFC Wimbledon to win 1-3 and set up a TV tie with the non-league side.
Sutton and Wimbledon drew 0-0 at The Borough Sports Ground on the 3G pitch to set up a return tie tonight. The game was scheduled for TV anyway whoever went through tonight with both AFC Wimbledon and Sutton United unhappy their fixture was missed off the TV list in favour of the regular Premier League games, and they had a point.
We will now play Sutton United away on January 29th in the fourth round. I’m looking forward to seeing how the players cope with the challenge. For now it’s on to Barnsley and the league, before the re-arranged fixture against Forest next Wednesday.
