The Magic of the Cup Continues: Chelsea v Southend & Histon 1 Leeds United 0!



Can this once mighty club be embarrassed any further?

Serious questions will now be asked of Gary McAllister.

However, who cares, as we'll all going to Stamford Bridge. Blimey, I can practicly see the floodlights from where I live! At last, a decent tie. Uncle Ron will be pleased, this could pay for the floodlights at Fossetts Farm!

Still, that tie will be discussed more, with the full third round draw, here: www.thelittlegazette.com/news/loadnews.asp?cid=TMNW&id=419857

In this section we return to celebrating Histon's great win and news of the other tie played.

Blue Square Premier high-fliers Histon secured another major scalp by beating Leeds 1-0 at the The Glassworld Stadium in the second round of the FA Cup.

Histon - who had won nine out of their last ten games, including the 1-0 FA Cup win over Swindon - held their own early on against Leeds as the sides battled against dreadful conditions.

And Leeds were left stunned after 39 minutes when defended Matthew Langston headed home a Gareth Gwilliam corner to send the home side in with a 1-0 lead at the break.

Leeds came back into it in the second half and Lubomir Michalik was unfortunate not to equalise after hitting the bar and seeing a shot cleared off the line, but Histon held on for another famous victory.

In the day's other game, Notts County played out a 1-1 draw with Kettering at Meadow Lane.

Kettering took the lead in the 18th minute through Brett Solkhon after Alfie Potter put the ball in from the right.

But 16 minutes later, the hosts equalised through Sean Canham from close range.

Notts County had a good chance to take the lead after 66 minutes as Kettering keeper denied Delroy Facey from close range before Canham put the ball over the bar, but it finished 1-1 to force a replay.
