A night of remarkable drama at The Dell. The game, which kicks off at 7:30 pm, finishes two hours 40 minutes later as the floodlights go out. Saints race into a four goal lead, all scored by Derek Reeves, but incredibly, with the home side's 'keeper off injured and defender Cliff Huxford going in goal, Leeds fightback to make the score 4-4. However, with practically the last kick of the game, Reeves scores his and Southampton's fifth to win a pulsating cup tie.
