Gus on the Leeds Road to Wembley

Gus on the Leeds Road to Wembley

Leeds United Assistant Manager Gus Poyet is pleased with the progression into the Area Quarter Finals of the Johnstone’s Paint trophy following the 1-0 victory at Darlington on Tuesday evening.

A single Paul Huntington goal was enough to seal the win, in a game that saw full debut’s for the former Newcastle United defender, back-up goalkeeper David Lucas and 33 minute cameo from exciting Portuguese midfielder Filipe Da Costa, and Poyet was clearly pleased with all three players’ contribution to the cause:

"There were a couple of players who were excellent - Ben Parker and David Lucas in goal - and that was important for the manager" he told Leedsunited.com

"We had different options on how to approach the game; if you look at someone like Arsenal they play a young team in the cups then change it for the final."

On new signing Da Costa, who lit up the final period of the game with a number of excellent attacking moves he said: "He will bring something different and I think the fans will like him."

The draw for the next round will take place live on Sky Sports 1 show Soccer AM, which broadcasts from 0900-1200 on Saturday mornings.
