Back to a Leeds United away day. It’s been a few years since I last went to an away match.
This time it was the FA Cup 4th round over in Bolton.
I wanted to get over there in good time so I didn’t have to mess about getting parked up.
The weather was a bit grim over the top.
I’d brought my dinner with me to stop me buying a dirty burger so snaffle that in the car before heading in and finding my seat.
It felt good to be back at an away day again.
It felt even better on 8 minutes when Doukara scored and put us 1-0 up.
We were playing OK without being massively in control of anything.
I nipped down for a bottle of water just before half time and missed Diagouraga’s first goal for Leeds to take us to 2-0. It felt awesome going into a 2 goal lead at half time.
In the second half we didn’t really push enough for a third and with ten minutes to go we got punished and let Bolton score. Luckily we held on even though there were a couple of scares and we progress through to the 5th round of the cup…would love a nice easy draw in the next round. Avoid the big boys…let’s have an easier match and hopefully progress to the quarter finals.
The drive home was insane. Took ages to get out of the car park, then I needed a pee just as we hit some traffic because of the snow near Huddersfield so I pulled off the motorway and nipped into a pub for a wee…when I came out, there had been an accident on the road to get back to the motorway so it ended up with me having to go right back to Saddleworth so I could come back the right way.
Great day! Looking forward to the draw tomorrow!
