Histon humble Leeds

Published Add your comment

Blue Square Premier promotion chasers Histon have won the biggest match in their history with a 1-0 victory over Leeds putting them into the draw for the FA Cup third round.

Matthew Langston scored the only goal of the game in the 39th minute at a wet and wild Glassworld Stadium when he headed in Gareth Gwillim's cross.

Histon dominated the first half and could have gone into the break further ahead, but they had to withstand a barrage of pressure in the second half.

Lubomir Michalik twice came within a whisker of equalising for Leeds, first seeing his shot cannon back off a post then a fierce drive headed off the line by Jack Midson late on.
