Leeds left frustrated by Norwich City's comeback
Oli Johnson's injury-time winner for Norwich City stopped Leeds closing the gap on the league leaders to just a point. Simon Grayson's men did their bit, beating Oldham - City's next opponents - 2-0 at Elland Road with Luciano Becchio getting both goals within seven second-half minutes.
Oli Johnson's injury-time winner for Norwich City stopped Leeds closing the gap on the league leaders to just a point.
Simon Grayson's men did their bit, beating Oldham - City's next opponents - 2-0 at Elland Road with Luciano Becchio getting both goals within seven second-half minutes. But, thanks to Johnson's own double, all that did was keep Leeds three points behind the Canaries - though they do still have a game in hand.
Third-placed Colchester saw their home game with Brentford called off because of the state of their pitch - but Charlton were unable to move above them as they went down 2-1 at home to Brighton.
Brighton, who came so close to beating Leeds at the weekend, took a first half lead through Inigo Calderon at The Valley and Elliott Bennett netted a second 12 minutes from time to ensure Akpo Sodje's 94th-minute strike was purely a consolation.
