Stuart Dallas head and shoulders above in Leeds win

Cambridge 1 Leeds Utd 2

Northern Ireland's Stuart Dallas was the star with a goal and an assist as Leeds survived a major scare to win 2-1 at League Two Cambridge and progress into the FA Cup fourth round.

Garry Monk's side were second best throughout the first period and trailed at the interval through Uche Ikpeazu's goal, but hit back in the second half with two goals in eight minutes.

They now go on to face lower league opposition again, having drawn Sutton United or AFC Wimbledon away in the fourth round.

Leeds looked rattled by Cambridge's tempo, though they were nearly level five minutes before the break, with Alex Mowatt finding space to crash an effort from long range which was heading in before being tipped over by Will Norris. From the resulting corner, Norris produced a super reaction stop to keep out Liam Cooper's header.

Cambridge did not initially look to sit on their lead after half-time, but Leeds hit back on 56 minutes and went on to take control of the game.

Mowatt provided a fine deep cross from the left which was met by a towering header from Dallas which left Norris with little chance.

Their comeback was complete seven minutes later, Mowatt diverting Pontus Jansson's header into the corner following Dallas' corner.
