David Healy's late penalty rescued a point for Leeds at Ipswich.David Healy rescued a deserved point for Leeds from a 1-1 draw with Ipswich at Portman Road.
The Northern Ireland international stroked in a penalty two minutes from time after Jason de Vos handled in the area.
It was just reward for Leeds who had laid seige to the Ipswich goal after falling behind to a Danny Haynes goal - his second for Ipswich.
Haynes was a constant threat to the Leeds defence with his quick, direct style, but once he had gone off injured just after the hour mark, the visitors dominated.
It was Haynes who had created the first opportunity of the match out of nothing, driving in a shot from an impossible angle which Neil Sullivan had to beat away for a corner.
Richard Naylor headed over from the resulting corner and again just moments later, as Joe Royle's men enjoyed a bright start.
But it was Leeds who had the best chances before the interval, with two Rob Hulse headers which were directed straight at Shane Supple.
Haynes scored the opening goal just three minutes after the break, sprinting clear of the Leeds defence onto Matt Richards' pass and beating Sullivan with a low right-foot shot.
He almost grabbed a second when he cut in from the left and crashed a shot against the crossbar, before limping off with what appeared to be a hamstring injury.
Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell threw on Healy and his side were soon in the ascendancy, coming close to an equaliser when Richard Cresswell's header was hacked off the line.
Their pressure finally paid off in the 88th minute when de Vos handled and referee Phil Crossley pointed to the spot despite the protests of the Ipswich players.
