Rodrigo celebratingRodrigo's penalty was one of 18 shots at goal by Leeds against Wolves

Rodrigo kept his nerve to convert an injury-time penalty as Leeds snatched a draw from their Premier League clash with Wolves at Elland Road.

Wolves looked to be heading for a fourth successive top-flight win for the first time since 1972 after Hwang Hee-chan gave them a first-half lead.

But the introduction of 19-year-old Joe Gelhardt by Leeds just after the hour proved an inspired move by Marcelo Bielsa.

The former Wigan forward brought a superb save out of Jose Sa and then, as Leeds piled forward at the end, weaved his way into the box, where he was brought down by Nelson Semedo.

The result keeps Leeds outside the relegation zone but seems to have come at a price as playmaker Raphinha needed to be helped down the tunnel after being caught by Romain Saiss' sliding tackle.

More to follow.
