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.
