Last-gasp Rodrigo pen rescues point for Leeds


Rodrigo’s stoppage-time penalty rescued a point for a spirited Leeds United as they eased the pressure on Marcelo Bielsa with a 1-1 draw with Wolves at Elland Road.

Hwang Hee-chan’s early strike looked to have fired Wolves to four successive victories in the Premier League for the very first time, but Leeds youngster Joe Gelhardt was the catalyst for the dramatic late comeback.

With talisman Raphinha forced off with an ankle injury, 19-year-old Gelhardt had two attempts on goal before his driving run in stoppage-time drew a rash challenge and penalty from Nelson Semedo.

Rodrigo kept his cool from 12 yards, converting a pressure spot-kick as Leeds salvaged a point from the jaws of defeat to maintain the three-point buffer between themselves and the relegation zone. Wolves, meanwhile, climb to 10th.
