Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Thanks for joining us on the live blog tonight - Leeds were below par in the first half and run ragged by an efficient Cambridge side, but did what they've done scores of times this season and saved their skin with their second half offering. 

We'll be back on Friday when Derby visit Elland Road - until then, enjoy the rest of your week.

GARRY MONK on centre half issues

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Garry Monk
PA

I'm disappointed with Pontus Jansson's booking, as I thought the ref got that wrong - Pontus has no idea the player is there and tries to give himself leverage to get off. 

Cooper's injury is an impact injury that's inflamed the top of the knee, but we're hoping it will settle in the next 24 hours and that he will be OK for Friday. 

GARRY MONK: Young group always learning

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Garry Monk
PA

Getting through was the aim and I'm really happy for those players. We have a young group and what they have about them is that they reset and go again after setbacks, try and learn and put it right. More often than not, they do that, in games and when we reflect on them. 

We were causing our own problems a little, trying to play out football but inviting pressure. It wasn't the right pitch to do that on and we talked about moving it higher up the pitch, playing our football in their half. I felt the team were trying to do the right things but I just felt they needed to play higher up - make the first pass a long one if you need to. We're very good at lasting games and they had their moments, but we saw that out. 

First half right up there from Cambridge

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Mark Johnson

BBC Radio Cambridgeshire

Maybe Derry is underestimating what his players have achieved - that first half was right up there in a spring of good performances. But as a manager, he has to be harsh - as soon as you start accepting defeat, against anyone, you're on a slippery slope.

SHAUN DERRY: I'm gutted

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Shaun Derry
PA

I'm full of disappointment - we can leave with our heads held high in many respects, but I'm gutted with the manner we conceded the goals. I never felt Leeds broke us down in terms of fluidity and play - they had a lot of the ball second half, but we talked about that during the week. For our first half performance, I'm gutted we didn't come in at 2-0. 

We executed our game plan, but never in our game plan was defending the goals that we conceded. We're going to try and build upon that first half display and take it into the league - we want to stay in and around the top seven and must make sure this is a positive to build into Saturday. 

Leeds hold a stature and I told my players to express themselves. They did that. I thought we had moments in the first half where a cutting edge would have allowed us to get a second goal, but you always know higher league opponents have a little switch they can turn on. There was too much space on the pitch for their goals. 

Cambridge come so far

Doug Shulman, BBC Radio Cambridgeshire

You look at Cambridge five years ago - they were knocking around in the Conference. Those were dark days. They're playing games like this now, and people want to come and watch them, want to come and play for them. I wonder if Shaun Derry made a conscious effort to keep Cambridge away from the draw, to shut themselves off from it. It would have been a winnable game in the next round but they can be proud of their performance tonight.   

Noel's verdict on Grimes and Antonsson

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Silvestri flapped a little tonight, didn't command his area as well as we know he can - he didn't deal with things properly and didn't get his hands around stuff as he usually does. Old habits crept back in. He wasn't the only one not at the races, though. 

I thought Grimes did better, mind - he has more aggression and quality about him now and tried to make things happen. That was a plus for him. 

But I still don't think anyone has really made a case to start in the league. Antonsson didn't have as much service as he needed in the first half - he had more people running off him and about him in the second, but the balls were aimless before that. 

Mowatt impressive

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Mowatt made some clever runs in difficult conditions and got a great shot off to test the keeper - he had a lot more pace and energy about him, and his ball for the equaliser was lovely. 

He's shown Monk that he's still here and still fighting. Does he need to consider a move? Well, this evening will have shown the manager that he can be the next man in the number ten role if Roofe goes out wide when Doukara isn't up to scratch. He's at a fantastic club but has to contribute. 

Half time management key

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Garry Monk might try a system - but if it's not working, the players should recognise that and make those changes themselves, be less sloppy. Cambridge were fantastic, squeezing a Leeds side that expected to have loads of time on the ball - but there was no way the home side could have kept that intensity up. 

It's strange, how Leeds always play so much better in the second half. It's interesting, and it shows Monk has a calm manner, an intelligence about him. He can get his ideas across but the team have to put that into practice, which they did. 

Leeds showed their class

Doug Shulman, BBC Radio Cambridgshire

I couldn't believe what I was watching in the first half, how well Cambridge pressed and how many second balls they won. But Leeds, credit to them, did show their class, and they probably would have had a telling off from Monk at half time. Cambridge really did take Leeds apart, and Monk probably would have ordered them to play a higher line and force Cambridge into errors.

Radrizzani happy

Cambridge start no surprise

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

That intensity in the second half - Leeds were a different animal and piled the pressure on. There was intensity, quality of passing and purpose. But the players shouldn't have been shocked by what Cambridge did - this was their chance to create an upset and Leeds had to respond to that. Cambridge could have had more than one. Leeds were far less negative in the second half and got men into the right positions when it counted. 

BreakingFULL TIME: CAMBRIDGE 1-2 LEEDS

Stay with us for all the reaction. 

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Ball breaking to Ikpeazu again and again - and now it's the last chance for Cambridge and EVERYBODY goes up onto the edge of the Leeds penalty area as the hosts win a corner. Jansson belts it away... Full time now, surely. 

Adam Pope

BBC West Yorkshire Sport

It's like a comfort blanket when Bartley is near the ball - the keeper belts it forward and he's there again and again. 

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Mowatt and Dallas keep it in the corner and try to run down the clock, but Dallas is accused of leaning into his man and it's a Cambridge free kick. The ball goes long and Jansson collects, sending it to Roofe. Roofe shoots from distance but it loops wide - Mowatt was in the middle.

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Head tennis as Ikpeazu breaks down the right, but Jansson thwarts him and squirrels it away to Denton. Leeds break and Dallas and Roofe work well to win a corner.

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Ikpeazu moves back inside and gets the shot away, but it fires into the top of the stand. Scary stuff for the visitors moments after Bartley saved their bacon.

Mingoia angles a shot away. The ball bounces to Silvestri and the Leeds keeper palms it forward but Leeds scramble it clear before the ball can get to Williams.

Lewie Coyle is fouled on halfway and Bartley applauds him for winning his individual battle - and that's what Leeds have needed. They've been more positive, winning second balls and challenges. 

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Attendance tonight is 7,973, 1,400 from Leeds. Coyle heads away from Dunne's effort and twists as he heads the ball - the Leeds man has gone down here but is getting to his feet, stretching his knee.  

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Jansson knocks Ikpeazu to the floor but it's clearly no foul - he just ran into the back of Jansson and flops down too easily. 

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Mingoia delivers the free kick but Denton hashes the clearance to gift the hosts a corner. The ball goes towards Ikpeazu and skims the top of his head - Roberts is running in behind but cannot convert.

Roofe has done so well for the hosts - they've fed the ball to him with increasing regularity. Roofe feeds it to Phillips, who shoots before the ball hits the defender's hand - but it's not deliberate. Ikpeazu picks up Silvestri's clearance and looks to go round Jansson, but Jansson belts it clear. Berry forces a foul from Mowatt and they have a free kick 15 yards from the area. 

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Good Cambridge harrying ensures the free kick comes to nothing but Leeds nonetheless look in control, winning a throw down the right. Roofe does well to turn out of trouble and links up well with Grimes, looking for Dallas down the line. Phillips arrives at pace but Adams blocks him off. 

Cambridge 1-2 Leeds

Ikpeazu breaks down the right and Jansson comes across to hand the hosts a throw. Taylor finds Ikpeazu, who holds off his man and is forced to turn - Taylor loops the ball in but Ikpeazu is stifled, Leeds winning a free kick for a heavy challenge on Denton.

Leeds have upped the tempo second half and are doing so well at penning Cambridge in - it's almost like they've just swapped shirts. Leeds are doing exactly what Cambridge did in the first half. Antonsson climbs well but nods it marginally wide for a goal kick.

Mowatt rifles it low as he meets the ball over the top and it goes through the keeper's legs, but drifts right along the far side to Dallas, Cooper getting it back in but not able to trouble Cambridge.

Adam Pope

BBC West Yorkshire Sport

So Jansson's suspended, Cooper's injured - Bartley's coming on, so we won't see Chris Wood tonight. Cooper - ooft. That does not look good at all. He's needing support from the physio and Leeds are stretched now, resource-wise. 

Cambridge United 1-2 Leeds

Legge heads it away with ease but Cooper goes down again... Noel Whelan reckons calf or ankle as the Leeds man winces at the physio's touch, pounding the floor in agony.

Cambridge United 1-2 Leeds

Cooper fouled by Ikpeazu and both end up on the floor - Cooper looking the worse off, mind. Referee lectures both and it's a Leeds free kick. 

BreakingCAMBRIDGE SUB: NEWTON OFF, DUNK ON

Phillips is caught in possession and Ikpeazu breaks, spreading it left to Dunne but Jansson doing well to clear. That was just after the change - Leeds can't switch off, though Roofe looks dangerous on the right. He hits a straight ball to Antonsson but it's too heavy. 

Cambridge United 1-2 Leeds

It's all about the second half, for Leeds - Monk gets them in, explains what's wrong, and they come out and change. It's been about attitude and aggression, and Leeds can't have been shocked by what they saw from their opponents. 

BreakingGOAL: CAMBRIDGE UNITED 1-2 LEEDS UNITED - MOWATT

Dallas chips the ball in and it goes up and out for a corner. Cambridge are looking a little hasty in the box now as Leeds attack to their own fans - and the ball goes high to Jansson, who directs it towards goal before Mowatt races in to dink it in from close range. 

Alex Mowatt

Cambridge 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Leeds weren't positive enough, first half - the quality just wasn't there. They were making poor decisions and probably needed Monk to speak to them. Coyle is raiding down the right now and is showing his strengths as a box-to-box wingback. That's what we need from him.

You cannot sustain this kind of pressing. You do wonder if Cambridge will tire now - they'll train hard, but Leeds are up for this fight in a way they weren't in the first.
