The two sides meet again at the Lane this time in FA Cup combat just seven days after that amazing encounter in the Barclays Premier League.
The pattern of the scoring in the 10-goal thriller says it all – we went 1-0 up then 1-1, 1-2, 2-2, 2-3, 3-3, 3-4, 4-4, 5-4 and finally 6-4. Dimitar Berbatov bagged four goals and it was the first time we’ve been involved in a 6-4 scoreline.
“It was a special game,” reflected Young-Pyo with a smile. “It was the first time a game like this has happened to me in my football career.
“It was very exciting for the players and the supporters and the most important thing is that we won. We conceded goals so if we hadn’t have won, we would have been very unhappy, but we won so it was good for us.
“Actually, I don’t want another game like that. Conceding four goals at home is not a good feeling for a defender. However, the most important thing is a win and if we do that, it’s the FA Cup and that’s fine.”
Young-Pyo Lee describes the 6-4 epic against Reading as ‘a special game’ – but doesn’t want a repeat on Saturday.
