Dougie Freedman threw Leeds a promotion lifeline deep into stoppage-time to make it 2-1 after Carlisle had stolen a march in the first leg of their Coca-Cola League One play-off semi-final.

Danny Graham and Marc Bridge-Wilkinson had stunned another full house at Elland Road with goals in each half to give Carlisle a big advantage.

But on-loan Crystal Palace striker Freedman latched onto Paul Huntington´s long ball into the box and forced the ball home in the fifth minute of time added on to give Leeds - second best for long periods - a fighting chance.
