Substitute David Healy's last-gasp penalty saved a few blushes, but on a night when Reading went to another level, is a point good enough?

A goal from Danny Haynes had the home fans at Portman Road believing they were sure of victory, but Jason de Vos was penalised for handling the ball in the area and Healy slotted home from the spot to move Leeds up to third.

Leeds made just one change following a 3-0 victory against Sheffield Wednesday, with Rob Hulse preferred to Robbie Blake in attack.

Leeds finished the first half strongly, with Fabian Wilnis managing to clear the ball to safety in a goalmouth scramble, before a Hulse header from a Lewis cross was punched clear by Supple.

But the Whites were rocked two minutes after the restart when Ipswich took the lead. Richards played in Haynes, and the young striker raced through, one-on-one with Neil Sullivan, kept his cool and slotted home.

Haynes came close to making it two shortly afterwards, turning Paul Butler on the left and bearing down on Sullivan, only to hack his shot against the crossbar.

But at the death Healy, on as a substitute for Miller, sent Supple the wrong way from the penalty spot to snatch a point for Kevin Blackwell's men.
