December 1st 1973. Leeds were running the division like no one else, but lost a point against QPR on a snowy Elland Road. The game ended 2-2. Goals by Dave Thomas and Stan Bowles.
We were actually doing quite well at the time, and had climbed from 14th to 7th place before we played the later to be champions. You can read the match report here: www.fikas.no/~aklo/images/qpr/73_mr_leeds_qpr.jpg Mind you, one week before the Leeds game, we got the same result against another very strong team, Liverpool.
I remember this game. It was during the 3 day week & we kicked off at 2. This was the only time I travelled on a football special & couldn't believe that we sat outside Kings Cross for about an hour on the return!
I went in the wrong entrance at Elland Road & had to stand with Leeds fans. Thankfully this wasn't a problem as they got an undeserved point & were surprised but complimentary about how we played.
That crap ref over ruled the linesman to give offside on the Francis goal & then told the media afterwards that he wouldn't look at the television highlights as he KNEW that he was right!
