Leeds United supporters were left in shock after seeing promotion rivals Ipswich Town win another huge game at the death on Monday.

Kieran McKenna's side reclaimed top spot in the Championship with a dramatic late win over fellow top two hopefuls Southampton just minutes before Leeds hosted Hull City. Substitute Jeremy Sarmiento poked home a scruffy finish in the 97th minute to make it 3-2 after his side took the lead before falling behind.

Ipswich were 2-1 down going into half-time and rode their luck once again, with Southampton unable to take one of several chances to extend their lead. The visitors were reduced to 10 men in the final minutes before Sarmiento nicked it at the death.

The result was a major blow for Leeds' promotion hopes on another chaotic night that went the way of Ipswich when it could so easily have been different. And supporters took to social media to vent their frustration in the aftermath.

Earlier in the day, Leicester City also won at home to Norwich City despite going behind. Tensions were high at the King Power Stadium but goals from Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Stephy Mavididi and Jamie Vardy turned the tide, with Leeds kicking off against Hull in third.
