Leeds United moved to the top of the Championship table courtesy of a 2-2 draw with Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday night.
The Whites entered the match off the back of three straight wins at the start of the 2018-19 campaign, but looked to be heading for a defeat in Wales.
Indeed, Oliver McBurnie sent Swansea 2-1 ahead in the early stages of the second period, and that was the score heading for the final 10 minutes.
However, Leeds levelled in the 79th minute when Patrick Bamford raced away in a wide position before delivering a low cross into Pablo Hernandez, who found the back of the net.

Bamford has thus far been forced to play second fiddle to Kemar Roofe following his arrival from Middlesbrough in this summer’s transfer window.
However, the centre-forward was on the scoresheet against Bolton Wanderers in the League Cup last week, and came off the bench to have a huge impact against Swansea on Tuesday night.
The Leeds fans were delighted with the 6ft 1in ace’s performance at the Liberty Stadium, and a selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
Worst we’ve played so far but we kept going. Bamford instrumental in that equaliser and that’s why you make those type of signings. Long may the unbeaten run continue! #lufc

Excellent point, would have taken that before game especially with no centre back, Bamford looked quality and great balls from Bielsa to change it up early, we march on👊🏻 #lufc
