The defender converted from the penalty spot in the 53rd minute following Lewie Coyle’s foul on Roarie Deacon to give the National League side a 1-0 victory over the Whites and a place in the fifth round for the first time in the club’s history.

Leeds, who fielded a much-changed line-up, played the final eight minutes at Gander Green Lane with 10 men after defender Liam Cooper was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Collins told BT Sport: “I think when we saw their team sheet, especially at home, we always thought we had a chance. I think there was only one or two that are regular first-team (players). But at home, we fancy our chances against anyone.
