Ally McCoist has posted a brilliant picture on Instagram with Leeds United legend Eddie Gray with both in attendance to watch our draw with Cardiff in the FA Cup – prompting reaction to the photo from Robbie Keane and Kemar Roofe.

Leeds came from two goals down to draw level with the Championship side in the third round of the FA Cup. Rodrigo got his 11th goal of the season, and his second in two games, before Sonny Perkins came off the bench to save the tie.

Jesse Marsch’s men will now face Cardiff in a replay, on 17 January, or 18 January. The tie will see Leeds play their first match in the FA Cup at Elland Road since a 2-0 win over Rotherham in January 2016. Liam Cooper the only survivor.

McCoist was commentating alongside Clive Tyldesley for ITV Sport. Following the result of the match, he posted a photo on Instagram with Leeds icon Gray. A game in which McCoist will have enjoyed more so, than Gray, in Wales.

It was a frustrating game for Leeds. A number of Premier League sides were on the receiving end of giant killings – Aston Villa, Newcastle United, Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest, for example. But Leeds came back to draw 2-2.

The positives for Jesse Marsch will be that he placed his faith in youth. Bringing Perkins, Cody Drameh and Mateo Joseph off the bench – leaving Jack Harrison unused. But it paid off and Perkins nabbed his first professional goal.

McCoist watched on as a neutral and will have enjoyed the clash, which included a red card and a missed penalty from Rodrigo. Gray will have been as frustrated like all Leeds fans. Roofe and Keane reacted to the post, after the game.
