Harrison makes up for own goal in Leeds draw with Brighton

Jack Harrison scored the equaliser in Leeds United’s 2-2 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League on Saturday, making up for the own goal he conceded earlier in the game.

Leeds had arrived at Elland Road with plenty of pressure on them after Bournemouth’s 1-0 upset of Liverpool earlier in the day dropped them into the relegation zone.

They breathed a sigh of relief when Harrison scored in the 78th minute after a short corner from Wilfried Gnonto, giving them a valuable point although they remain in 19th place.

The equaliser came after Harrison, under pressure from Solly March, had put the ball into his own net in the 61st minute.

Alexis Mac Allister had opened the scoring for Brighton in the 33rd minute heading in his ninth goal of the season.

Patrick Bamford then scored his 49th goal overall for Leeds in the 40th minute, when his strike from the edge of the box was deflected and went in off the underside of the crossbar.

Brighton, who arrived with a club-record 11 Premier League wins already this season, are seventh in the table on 39 points.
