Leeds 2-1 Norwich

Leeds 2-1 Norwich

Leeds United   2 - 1   Norwich

Jermaine Beckford punished an error by Norwich keeper Fraser Forster in injury time to give Leeds a win that sent them back to the top of League One.

Forster scuffed his clearance straight to Beckford, who slotted past the on-loan keeper to seal the last-gasp win.

The hosts had taken the lead when Bradley Johnson leaped at the far post to head home a Robert Snodgrass corner.

Grant Holt pounced on Simon Lappin's low cross to put the visitors level but Beckford had the final say.


Leeds manager Simon Grayson told BBC Radio Leeds:

"I thought Norwich were excellent and that's the hardest game we've had this season.

"We played Liverpool a few weeks ago and they didn't give us the problems Norwich did.

"We knew they would cause us problems but we have got a desire at this club to keep going and get results when we haven't played as well as we can do."

Norwich manager Paul Lambert told BBC Radio Norfolk:

"I thought we were the better team. I thought we were terrific and dominated the game for long spells.

"Fraser Forster will learn from his mistake. He's only a young kid and he made two terrific saves for us.

"The lad's got nothing to be ashamed of, nothing to be disappointed about, we were excellent. I don't care if it is biased but we were the better team."
