History

They have met seven times in the FA Cup, Spurs have won 3, Leeds 1 and 3 have been drawn.

When they met at White Hart Lane just over a week ago Leeds salvaged a 2-2 draw with a penalty from Jermaine Beckford deep into injury time.

In an enthralling FA Cup tie, Jermaine Defoe saw an early penalty for Spurs saved by Casper Ankergren.
Peter Crouch gave the home side the lead shortly before half time only for Beckford to equalise for a first time five minutes into the second half.

Roman Pavlyuchenko put Spurs back in front before the later drama which saw Leeds awarded a spot kick after a foul by Michael Dawson on Beckford.
