Leeds United’s Alex Mowatt proves too bright for Cambridge in FA Cup

You might have expected the Cambridge United manager, Shaun Derry, to be pleased that his side gave Leeds United, a team two divisions above his own, a significant scare in their FA Cup third round tie on Monday. Not a bit of it. “I’ve got disappointment seeping through my blood,” said Derry, after Leeds came from a goal down to seal victory at the Cambs Glass Stadium.Derry’s disappointment stemmed from an eight-minute second half spell in which Leeds scored two virtually identical goals, through Stuart Dallas and Alex Mowatt, when Cambridge had dominated the first half and could have added to Uche Ikpeazu’s opener. “Yes, we can walk out with our heads held high in many respects, but I’m disappointed we didn’t come in 2-0 up at half-time,” said Derry, a man clearly not satisfied with moral victories.
