1971/72 ORIGINAL DIVISION ONE TICKET LEEDS UNITED V IPSWICH TOWN
Leeds' stuttered to a 2-2 draw at home to Ipswich. The visitors took a shock two-goal lead on the hour when Allan Clarke's older brother Frank nodded home from a corner.
United responded sharply and pulled one goal back two minutes later from a Bremner header. A controversial score with six minutes to go brought them level. Terry Brindle in the Yorkshire Post: 'With Leeds piling irresistible pressure on the Ipswich goal, Allan Clarke stabbed in an angled shot which hit Best, rebounded and was booted away by Morris. The referee, Mr Jack Taylor, signalled a goal, was mobbed by protesting Ipswich players, and stuck to his guns after brief consultation with a linesman.
'Was it a goal? "Of course," said Mr Taylor. "I was standing only about three yards away, and the ball was a foot over the line when it hit the goalkeeper. No doubt whatsoever." "Of course," said the Leeds players and manager Don Revie, who was six inches surer than Mr Taylor. "It was 18 inches over the line," he said.
;When Ipswich had taken a two-goal lead through Allan Hunter and Frank Clarke - totally against the run of play and probability - it seemed Leeds were destined for unheard of defeat. But their profound character won through. The pressure was redoubled to unbearable intensity, the resolve never wavered and Ipswich finally capitulated.
VERY GOOD CONDITION
