Last Minute Equaliser Saves Leeds United

August 21, 2011

The goals keep coming if Leeds are in town and they didn’t disappoint today as they travelled to Upton Park. Simon Grayson has yet to rectify the defensive frailties that have been all too apparent not only already this season, but all through last year too. Luckily however, they can still score goals, although they left it very very late to rescue a point from this game versus West Ham.

I say chaps, we cant be giving them away in the last minute!

The Hammers went in front after just 6 minutes as Carlton Cole struck. Leeds missed a penalty in the first half and the score was 1-1 at the break.

Leeds got one back on 59 minutes with a McCormack goal, but just two minutes later surrendered the lead as Kisnorbo put through his own net to regain the lead for West Ham.

It was down to 22 midfielder Adam Clayton to score his first goal for the club in the final minute to rescue Leeds a point. West Ham take their tally to 7 points in four games and sit in 6th position in the early season table.

Looking at who sit above the Hammers, one would suggest that Southampton, Derby, Brighton, Peterborough and Crystal Palace will all be below West Ham in the final table.
