Leeds United and Charlton Athletic played out a 2-2 draw at Elland Road in the Championship on Tuesday.

Souleymane Doukara had the first chance of the game after just five minutes when he shot on goal from inside the box, but his attempt went wide.

Mirco Antenucci had a shot saved just two minutes later and came close again in the 35th minute.

Leeds eventually took the lead four minutes into the second period when Alex Mowatt fired home from outside the Charlton box.

Antenucci had yet another chance to score in the match soon after, but it was the visitors who bagged the second goal of the contest through Johann Berg Gudmundsson.

Neil Redfearn’s side, though, regained their one-goal advantage midway through the second half, Mowatt finding the target with his left foot from outside the box.

Antenucci had two chances in succession for Leeds, before Charlton’s Andre Bikey had a header saved.

Leeds, though failed to retain the lead. Giuseppe Bellusci brought down Tal Ben Haim inside the box on 79 minutes, and Gudmundsson made no mistake from the penalty spot to make it 2-2.
