Football League ace delivers Leeds verdict, makes Man United comparison
By Harvey Byrne
Cambridge goalkeeper Will Norris believes his side’s upcoming clash against Leeds has the same feeling as one against Manchester United.
The Yorkshire giants are preparing to travel to the Abbey Stadium on Monday evening where they will face the League Two side in the FA Cup.
Leeds have not played in the English top flight for 13-years after suffering relegation in 2004.
However, they still hold a massive reputation in English football and Norris compared the draw to their one against Manchester United in January 2015.
“It’s got the same sort of feeling as the Man United game and it’s the same sort of calibre of opposition as they’re a really big team,” told Norris to Cambridge News.

“We’ll do our preparation, we’ll work hard and it’s going to be another special night for the whole football club.
“We need to do our homework, work hard on the training ground and when the night comes around we’ll see what happens.
“When it’s a packed house here anything’s possible, as we saw with the Man United game.
“We score goals so if I can keep a clean sheet we’ll have a chance.”
Cambridge held Leeds’ rivals at the Abbey Stadium in a 0-0 draw before being smashed 3-0 by Manchester United in the replay.
They will be sure to present a stern test against the Whites as they sit in seventh place in League Two with former Elland Road man Shaun Derry their manager.
It remains to be seen what team Garry Monk will decide to put out for the clash with his side also performing admirably in the league.
Leeds are currently occupying fifth place in the table and they will be sure to avoid any extra distractions that could deter their bid for promotion.
