Teenager Perkins earns replay with stoppage-time leveller ‘We have to learn about cup matches and how to handle them’ Jesse Marsch has called on his Leeds side to use their late escape from an embarrassing FA Cup defeat at 10-man Cardiff City as a “stepping stone”.

Leeds have won only two of their past 16 matches in all competitions and Marsch said they must heed the lessons of their lat ..read more

Just as it seemed Leeds United were staring at another early FA Cup exit to file with the rest of them, the teenage substitute Sonny Perkins struck in the third of five minutes of second-half stoppage time to earn a replay against 10-man Cardiff City. Leeds’s recent history in this competition is ignominious at best – they have gone out at this stage in each of the five previous seasons – and at half-time they trailed to goals by Jaden Philogene and Sheyi Ojo. Another substitute, Rodrigo, headed in within five minutes of entering and then had a penalty saved before Perkins, on his second senio ..read more
