Robert Snodgrass scored in stoppage-time to grab a point for Leeds against Coca-Cola League One leaders Leicester in Simon Grayson's first match in charge of the Yorkshire side.

The draw meant Leicester were unable to fully restore their four-point lead at the top of the league, which had been trimmed to one point when MK Dons beat Bristol Rovers earlier in the day.

Matt Oakley put Leicester ahead after 24 minutes at Elland Road when he cracked a 25-yard shot past Casper Ankergren.

Grayson, who replaced Gary McAllister as Leeds manager earlier this week, threw on Snodgrass for the final 15 minutes as he tried to turn the flow of the match after a lacklustre Leeds showing.

The move proved to be a prudent one as Luciano Becchio found the striker just inside the box and Snodgrass smashed the ball past David Martin to snatch a point for Leeds.

MK Dons had strengthened their position in second place after a 2-1 win over Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium.

Aaron Wilbraham headed home Peter Leven's cross to put the Dons ahead before Jo Kuffour gave Rovers an instant reply with a 20-yard strike.

The hosts had looked comfortable until Byron Anthony headed into his own net to give the Dons the win just before the hour.

Scunthorpe did their promotion prospects no harm as they hammered Hartlepool 3-0 at Glanford Park. Grant McCann opened the scoring before Gary Hooper doubled the Irons' lead just after the break.

Any doubts over the result were put to bed in stoppage-time when Paul Hayes scored a penalty after Ritchie Humphreys fouled Matthew Sparrow.
