Beckford gives Leeds shock win

Published Add your comment

Jermaine Beckford's first-half goal sent Leeds into FA Cup dreamland at Old Trafford following a 1-0 win over rivals Manchester United.

The in-form striker's 20th goal of the season was enough to dump Sir Alex Ferguson's side out of the competition.

On their first visit for nearly six years, the League One side clinched their first win at the home of their bitter rivals since 1981 and it was greeted with unbridled joy by a 9,000-strong travelling army.
