Leeds v Ipswich: The Blues missed the chance to move back into the Championship’s top six, losing 2-1 at Leeds United on Wednesday evening.

Substitute Daryl Murphy saw his late penalty tipped on to the post by Leeds goalkeeper Marco Silvestri, the Whites hanging on to move up a place in the table.

All the action came in the last 20 minutes and especially during a crazy six-minute spell.

Alex Mowatt gave the hosts a 71st-minute lead with a superb free-kick, before fellow substitute Freddie Sears levelled three minutes later with an effort from a tight angle.

However, former Town target Billy Sharp volleyed home three minutes later to put United back in front.
