Leeds United recorded a second draw under new manager Steve Evans.

Leeds United made it two draws in two games under new manager Steve Evans after a 1-1 stalemate against Bolton Wanderers.

The Whites drew 1-1 at Fulham in midweek, and moved on to the Macron Stadium to take on Neil Lennon's struggling Bolton side.

New manager Evans will have been looking for his first win as Leeds boss, but saw his team fall behind as new Bolton signing Shola Ameobi opened the scoring for the Trotters in the first half.

However, Leeds did get their point in the second half, as Leeds were handed a penalty when Prince-Desi Gouano fould Mirco Antenucci - which the French defender was sent off for.

Antenucci stepped up to fire home the penalty, but Leeds couldn't find the winning goal, meaning that Evans picked up another point away from home.

The result leaves Leeds in 17th place on 13 points, whilst Bolton continue to struggle at the bottom of the table with only nine points to their name.
