Leeds United’s FA Cup shock was part made in Tamworth

Crawley Town have stunned Premier League side Leeds United in the FA Cup this afternoon.

And the shock saw defender Jordan Tunnicliffe, who hails from Tamworth, net the third in a 3-0 victory.

Nick Tsaroulla and Ashley Nadesan also scored for Crawley in a stunning win.

Jordan told BBC Radio Five: “We knew if we were going to be in it then it was going to be really tight, and it was to be fair, but we got in at half-time and were told that if we keep doing what we’re doing we’ll get chances and the first two goals came quickly and we defended resolutely and I think we fully deserved to win to be honest.

“The lads were brilliant and I’ve been lucky enough to get on the scoresheet but that’s for all the lads and the fans that are watching at home and can’t be here.

“It means everything. Everybody is going through a tough time at the moment but we wanted to put a show on today to show everybody how much we care and want to do it from them.”
