Leeds United became another big victim in the FA Cup fourth-round after suffering a huge cup upset against non-league Sutton United, who sealed their spot in this evening’s fifth-round draw courtesy of a penalty from skipper Jamie Collins.
It shattered the hearts of Leeds fans, who have been experiencing a rather enjoyable season as they look to return to the Premier League, and it’s a case of deja vu for the Peacocks- as it isn’t the first-time a non-league side has got the better of the Yorkshire giants.
2 – Leeds United have lost to non-league opposition in the FA Cup for only the second time (also vs Histon in November 2008). Woe.

It may only be the second-time in their history but that’s two too many for the majority of Leeds supporters. They’ll definitely have their hearts set on better things this season but this defeat certainly puts a fork in the round.
Leeds will now be able to focus solely on their push for a return to the top-flight but, given their record against non-league sides, they’ll hope to avoid a minnow next season.
