Andy Rinomhota snatched a dramatic injury-time equaliser to earn Reading a point in a 2-2 draw with Championship leaders Norwich at Carrow Road.

Yakou Meite's 30th-minute goal looked like giving the struggling Royals an unlikely victory until late-goal specialists Norwich did it again.

Centre-back Ben Godfrey produced a superb finish in the 86th minute to equalise and two minutes later Christoph Zimmermann put the leaders ahead.

That looked to be that, but seven minutes into stoppage time Rinomhota guided the ball into the far corner, bringing Norwich's eight-game winning run to an end.

Sheffield United had the chance to leapfrog Leeds into second place and close the gap to Norwich but they were held to a 1-1 draw by Birmingham. Enda Stevens gave the Blades the lead in the 38th minute but Michael Morrison levelled four minutes later.

An eventful evening in Rotherham ended with 10-man Aston Villa securing a seventh consecutive win. Tammy Abraham's early penalty miss looked very costly when Tyrone Mings was penalised for handball in the other area and shown a second yellow card, with Will Vaulks converting.
