Thompson saves United's blushes with a late equaliser against the Saddlers

End to end play at the Bescot Stadium resulted in stalemate for the first 75 minutes then Tommy Mooney left footed into the net, from the six-yard line, to put Walsall into the lead, 0-1.

This sparked United into life and an injury time, deflected free kick, from substitute Alan Thompson sailed into the net from 30 yards, 1-1.

Jonathan Douglas was carried off in the last minute with what seems to be a serious injury to his left leg.

Leeds had the most possession but Walsall had slightly the better chances. United go home with a draw and that is about what they deserved from a pretty dour game.

The attendance of 10,102 was one of the Saddlers best at the Bescot.

Walsall 1 Leeds United 1
