Andy Couzens posts Twitter verdict on Leeds FA Cup loss to Sutton
By Will Butcher
Andy Couzens has blasted Leeds for their dismal performance against non-league opponents Sutton United on Sunday.
The Yorkshire giants lost 1-0 to the National League side, after Sutton captain James Collins struck from the penalty spot to book their place in the FA Cup fifth round.
Posting on his personal Twitter account, former Leeds star Couzens described his old side as “rubbish” and believes Sutton deserved a place in the next round of the cup.
Well that was rubbish end of….!!! They were the better team and deserved the win.

Garry Monk fielded a side that included two debuts for Billy Whitehouse and Paul McKay, before Mallik Wilks bravely made his debut as a substitute following the passing of his brother.
However, Sutton’s hard work paid off at Gander Green Lane, as Lewie Coyle’s foul allowed Collins to score from the penalty spot.

Things went from bad to worse for the Yorkshire giants, as Liam Cooper received his marching orders for two yellow card offences and will now be unavailable for Leeds’ match against Blackburn on Wednesday.
Monk will be hoping Leeds’ unexpected exit in the cup does not affect their momentum in the league, with three points potentially taking them to third and within four points of an automatic promotion place.
Couzens, a Leeds academy graduate, made 37 appearances in all competitions for Leeds between 1993 and 1997, before moving on to play for the likes of Carlisle and Blackpool.
