ALLAN CLARKE SCORES LEED’S WINNER
City fought for their lives to get something from the game, however the single goal victory for the Yorkshire men could have been much higher, Peter Lorimer hit a post, Johnny Giles missed a penalty after Tony Book recklessly brought down Terry Cooper, and then Joe Corrigan pulled off some great saves to give the Blues a chance until the final whistle.
On the occasions City did get forward Gary Sprake was also in great form for Leeds.
For the record Mr Diamond the referee had to be stretchered from the pitch after a muscle problem late in the first half, and was replaced by linesman Mr Harwood.
