Adam Clayton's last-minute goal salvaged a dramatic point for Leeds in their npower Championship clash at West Ham.

West Ham led twice and looked to be heading for a third straight win when Patrick Kisnorbo's own-goal made it 2-1 in the second half.

But as the clock ticked down Leeds, who earlier missed a penalty through Max Gradel, snatched an equaliser through 22-year-old midfielder Clayton.

Sam Allardyce's side, beaten by a last-gasp goal by Cardiff in their last home game, had since recorded two victories on the road by grabbing early leads and they repeated the trick in the sixth minute at Upton Park.

Leeds goalkeeper Andy Lonergan had already tipped over headers from Carlton Cole and James Tomkins, but he was beaten when Matt Taylor swung in a second corner.
