SUPPORTERS are eagerly looking forward to the latest Town-Leeds derby at the Galpharm on Saturday.
But rival managers Lee Clark and Simon Grayson will be fully focused on tomorrow’s League I engagements.
While Town go to Tranmere aiming to make it nine points from nine on the road before their big home return, Leeds host Oldham desperate to return to winning ways.
With Norwich going down 2-0 at home to Southampton on Saturday, when Lee Barnard bagged both Saints goals and the Canaries had Darel Russell sent off for violent conduct, beating Brighton would have put Leeds within a point of the leaders.
But instead the Whites scraped a 1-1 Elland Road draw – thanks to a stoppage-time leveller by Robert Snodgrass.
Glenn Murray’s 77th-minute penalty had Brighton boss Gus Poyet eyeing a winning return to Leeds, where he was assistant to Dennis Wise.
But Brighton defender Adam Virgo was then sent off for a foul on Max Gradel.
And in the fifth minute of injury time, Patrick Kisnorbo nodded down Gradel’s cross for Snodgrass to rifle home.
Third-placed Colchester are just a point behind Leeds and four off Norwich after a 1-0 home win over Oldham.
Danny Batth’s 64th-minute goal sealed it.
Kyel Reid and David Mooney scored the goals against Yeovil at The Valley to give fourth-placed Charlton a first win in six matches.
And Swindon, in fifth, were also 2-0 victors, Charlie Austin and Billy Paynter counting at home to Carlisle.
Town’s elevation into the top six was at the expense of Milwall, who lost 1-0 at second-bottom Wycombe.
Julian Kelly scored while Wycombe keeper Tom Heaton saved a Neil Harris penalty before his teammate Gareth Ainsworth was red carded for an elbow.
Tranmere are 17th after their 2-1 home win over Orient.
Ian Thomas-Moore and Marvin Sordell scored in the first half for Rovers, with Orient’s 86th-minute reply coming from former Town trialist Jonathan Tehoue.
