Give us your player ratings as Leeds reach FA Cup fifth round with Accrington Stanley win

Leeds United booked their place in the FA Cup fifth round for the first time since 2016 with a 3-1 victory over League One side Accrington Stanley at the Wham Stadium.

Jack Harrison opened the scoring when he unleashed a powerful effort from range into the corner of the net inside 23 minutes. Junior Firpo doubled the Whites' advantage, after tucking away Patrick Bamford's sublime pass midway into the second half.

Luis Sinisterra added a third to end the game as a contest, although 18-year-old substitute Leslie Adekoya grabbed a consolation for the hosts.

Georginio Rutter made his Leeds debut and came close during the opening exchanges when his low shot flashed wide of the far post.

Leeds got a foothold on the game once Harrison broke the deadlock, and Sinisterra came within a lick of paint away from adding a second when his shot from outside the box was woodwork onto the bar by Toby Savin.

Harvey Rodgers blazed over a golden chance at the back post just at the start of the second half, but Leeds took control after the break to send the tie out of Stanley's reach.
