West Ham 1-1 Leeds
An injury-time penalty rescued a hard-fought draw for Leeds at Upton Park.

Leeds started well but struggled in the second half, having fallen behind to a Luke Chadwick goal after half-time.

A Matt Etherington cross found Marlon Harewood in the area and the striker's blocked header fell into the path of Chadwick whose shot beat Neil Sullivan.

Leeds kept battling and were rewarded late on when Steve Lomas brought down David Healy in the area and he stepped up to score from the spot.

  • West Ham boss Alan Pardew gives his reaction to the penalty:

    "We are incensed with the penalty decision.

    "It was a desperate dive, an obvious dive, but the referee has given it. We are very disappointed with the point.

    "We played some terrific stuff and injury time was a cruel blow for the lads."

  • Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell:

    "West Ham aren't happy with the penalty but I'm just pleased to get a very good point against a very good side.

    "If the video shows that David has dived I will have a word with him.

    "My lads deserve great credit for battling away and getting a great point."
