Lively Leeds make Southampton pay

The Saints have found life tough since leaving the likes of Leeds behind in the npower Championship in the summer, accruing just four points from a possible 27, and even the bounty of a quarter-final berth could not lift them last night as goals from Michael Tonge and El-Hadji Diouf, as well as Luciano Becchio’s penalty, saw the home side through.

LEEDS: Ashdown, Peltier (Pugh 90), Lees, Pearce, White, Byram, Austin, Brown, Tonge, Varney (Becchio 90), Diouf (Gray 90).

SOUTHAMPTON: Kelvin Davis, Butterfield, Hooiveld, Seaborne, Reeves, Mayuka, Chaplow, De Ridder (Isgrove 67), Ward-Prowse, Lee (Shaw 67), Do Prado.

Ref: Chris Foy (Merseyside).
