After months of keeping a low profile on the groundhopping front, the arrival of the EFL Cup 4th round over the half term break presented me with the ideal opportunity to tick off another 92 ground.
Geographically, Leeds United were the nearest (participating) club I'd yet to visit in the North of England and with a bargain price of £15 for a midweek cup match, it would be rude not to.
It's hard to imagine that Leeds United were Champions of England only 25 years ago now and that until 2004 were a Premier League team. Furthermore, it's hard to imagine that when they went down to the Championship that they were in £80million of debt, yet in 2016 most Premier League clubs can spend that amount buying four players (or one) in one transfer window.
The Don Revie stand behind the goal has a traditional feel to it with the poles holding up the roof and the crowd standing up throughout the entirety of the game regardless of what is happening.
Norwich drew first blood with a goal from Alex Pritchard, with Leeds United taking hold of the game soon after that. Their pressing and passing finally paid off when Kemar Roofe drove towards the barline and sent over a cross for Antonsson to score from close range unmarked.
Once half time arrived there was a feeling that the second half would deliver more goals but that wasn't the case. Both teams cancelled each other out unfortunately and that meant that we were heading to extra time and penalties.
Relentless Leeds once again stuck the ball back in the net in the second half of extra time and ended up 2-2 AET.
After a tense penalty shoot out with plenty of saves and mistakes, Leeds finally managed to upset the odds and win 3-2 from the spot. Liverpool awaits in the next round now.
Final note to make was the 22,222 in attendance. That number won't be achieved for a long time.
