A depleted Leeds side find themselves 3-0 down after just 17 minutes at Portman Road.

Within two minutes, Robertson makes it 3-0 when he beats the advancing David Harvey and Leeds are left with a mountain to climb. Harvey saves a point blank Mick Mills effort before Terry Hibbitt pulls one back from 25 yards. Leeds play with spirit in the second half and Eddie Gray makes it 3-2 late on but there is no time for an equaliser.
