Leeds 2-2 Norwich
Eddie Lewis' stunning last-minute free-kick rescued a crucial point for promotion-chasing Leeds United.

Rob Hulse put Leeds ahead from 10 yards after 20 minutes with his 12th goal of the season, but Norwich fought back.

The Canaries were level after 57 minutes when Simon Charlton's pass found Andy Hughes, who shot home.

Norwich were ahead with 15 minutes left when Paul McVeigh fired low past Neil Sullivan, but Lewis produced a moment of inspiration to snatch a point.

  • Leeds assistant boss Sam Ellis on his side's automatic promotion hopes:
    "We are a point nearer and for the first time since August or September it is in our own hands.

    "It could be better but our players are fit and raring to go. They actually think they can finish second so we could not be in a better position."

  • Norwich boss Nigel Worthington
    "We worked hard and caused Leeds all sorts of problems in the second half.

    "It was important we came here in a positive frame of mind.

    "Elland Road is a magnificent ground with a wonderful atmosphere but the players got their teeth into the game in good style."
