Sullivan earns Leeds point

Leeds United had Neil Sullivan to thank for their goalless draw at Cardiff City after he saved a penalty.
The former Wimbledon and Chelsea keeper saved Andy Campbell's penalty to earn his side a point.
Cardiff have not hit the target at home for five games and they showed just why after missing a penalty and hitting the woodwork twice.
City earned a penalty on 20 minutes when Stephen Crainey brought down on-loan West Ham man Jobi McAnuff inside the box.
Campbell stepped up to take the spot-kick on his return to the side, but saw his penalty saved by the legs of Sullivan.
Leeds only had a couple of efforts from Brett Ormerod to speak of as they struggled to make an impact on the match.
Campbell dragged a great chance wide of the post when superbly set up by Paul Parry, while Peter Thorne also wasted a chance from close range.
Sullivan made a terrific save from Thorne's late snap-shot, while Campbell's miserable afternoon was compounded when he hit the frame of the goal from McAnuff's corner.
Kevin Blackwell had Sullivan and Cardiff's poor finishing to thank for earning a point, while the Welsh side continue to struggle near the foot of the table.
