Leeds United missed a great chance to close the gap on the play-off places after conceding a last minute equaliser at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

A dour game was brought to life in the second half when Lee Peltier put through his own goal to give Wolves the lead.

Leeds were level just past the hour when Ross McCormack teed up Luke Varney, who made it two goals in three games.

McCormack then gave Leeds the lead from the penalty spot after Sam Byram had been brought down in the area.

Leeds looked like they were going to clinch three crucial points until Danny Batth headed home in the second minute of injury time.

The draw moves Leeds up a place to eleventh, five points off sixth placed Middlesbrough. Leeds travel to Middlesbrough on Tuesday night in a must win game.


Wolverhampton Wanderers:
Ikeme, Foley, Berra, Batth, Ward, Henry (Edwards 87), Doumbia (Sigurdarson 78), O`Hara, Doyle, Sako, Ebanks-Blake

Subs not used:
De Vries, Margrietter, Davis, Hunt, Cassidy

Leeds United:
Kenny, Byram, Lees, Peltier, Warnock, Brown, Norris, Green, Varney, Morison, McCormack (Barkley 90)
