Rodrigo scored a penalty in one of the close football results of the weekend in the Premier League. Wolves grabbed the early lead when Hwang Hee-chan continued his goal-scoring form. Joe Gelhardt came on and changed the complexion of the game with his closing down and work rate. He had two shots on goal before his marauding run into the area was rewarded after he was brought down by Nelson Semedo. Leeds find themselves three points above the relegation zone while Wolves scrape into the top half of the table.

Man of the match: Joe Gelhardt
Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa: “I think we deserved more than the draw. Apart from some things are the start of both halves, we had control of the game even if we could have created more chances. But progressively we started to get closer and closer to the goal and to have won the game would have been more in accordance with what happened on the pitch. We hope [this can be a platform for the rest of the season].”
Wolves head coach Bruno Lage: “We won three points at Aston Villa after time, today was our turn to drop points. This is football. When you look at the game you can accept the result but, at the same time, when you work like we did [it’s hard to take].”
