Leeds 3-1 Hull City

Archie Gray celebrates Leeds' second goal vs Leicester

Late Crysencio Summerville and Dan James goals saw Leeds end a dramatic day in the Championship with a 3-1 win over Hull City to lift them up to second.

After Ipswich’s 97th-minute winner to keep them top of the table, Leeds’ weekend looked likely to end as a damp squib until Summerville was bundled over by Regan Slater in the penalty area three minutes from time.

The hosts had struck first with a rare goal from Sam Byram, who nodded in after Summerville had been denied, but they were made to pay for a succession of missed chances after that.

Patrick Bamford somehow skied an effort over from four yards before Hull equalised from their first chance when Fabio Carvalho got across his man to turn Tyler Morton’s cross past Illan Meslier.

The visitors played their part from then on but Leeds continued to squander opportunities, and substitute Mateo Joseph was left with his head in his hands when he struck the base of the post from close range.

Eventually, it needed a rash intervention from Slater to hand Leeds the chance to return to the automatic promotion places, and after wrestling the ball off Joel Piroe, Summerville beat Allsop to restore Leeds’ advantage from 12 yards.
