Leeds United eased into the 2022/2023 English FA Cup fifth round yesterday after a stunner from Jack Harrison helped see off Accrington with a 3-1 away win.
Harrison blasted the English Premier League side in front from distance midway through the first half against the third-tier strugglers.
Thereafter, a first Leeds United goal for Junior Firpo and another from Luis Sinisterra helped ease some of the pressure on manager Jesse Marsch.
Substitute Leslie Adekoya scored with his first touch late on to earn John Coleman’s team a consolation.
