Leeds United 1-1 Luton Town: Stuart Dallas goal earns leaders draw

Stuart Dallas scores for Leeds

Leeds United came from behind to draw with relegation-threatened Luton Town and extend their lead at the top of the Championship to four points.

It was far from a vintage performance from Marcelo Bielsa's side, who did not get going until Harry Cornick gave the visitors a shock second-half lead with a superb curling finish on the counter.

From then on it was an onslaught from the hosts, Luton goalkeeper Simon Sluga making several good saves before Stuart Dallas had the presence of mind to control the ball inside a crowded box and place low into the net to equalise.

Leeds were the only side who looked like going on to win, Patrick Bamford losing his footing when well-placed to head home and Helder Costa failing to get good contact to a last-gasp Ezgjan Alioski cross.

The result means the Whites are now just six points clear of third-placed Brentford - who thrashed Reading on Tuesday - while Luton fall back to the bottom of the table but are now just two points from safety in a congested fight for survival.
