Leeds v Swansea live

Minute's applause for Terry Venables.

GOOO - no - offside

Ball in the net but offside

Inside a minute, crazy start

It's 1-1!!!! Mad start!

5: James has the ball in the net at one end but is offside. Swansea then hit a long ball forward, Struijk makes a mess of his attempted header back to Meslier, Paterson nips in and lobs Meslier with one minute on the clock. But Leeds hit straight back as Summerville plays in Piroe to neatly convert.

10: Leeds denied a penalty as Byram's cross from the left hits a hand, not given

13: Summerville glides past Cabango inside the box, shot from a tight angle saved by Rushworth's feet.

17: Summerville down and having treatment after colliding with Fulton, seems to be okay

18: Back on and quick burst of pace to try and reach a Rutter pass down the flank, too much on it, Leeds well on top now

21: Lowe cuts in from the left, shot deflected behind for a corner
