Championship leaders Leeds snatched a remarkable 3-2 win over Blackburn thanks to two late goals, while promotion rivals Norwich escaped with a dramatic 3-3 draw against Nottingham Forest on Wednesday.
At Elland Road, Leeds took the lead through Blackburn defender Derrick Williams’ first-half own goal.
Blackburn equalised at the start of the second half from Charlie Mulgrew’s penalty.
Mulgrew looked to have won it with a free-kick in the 89th minute, but Kemar Roofe equalised in stoppage time.
And Roofe struck again in the fourth minute of additional time to send Elland Road wild as Leeds moved three points clear at the top.

The comeback victory was Bielsa’s side’s second in as many games following their dramatic late win over Aston Villa at Villa Park on Sunday.
Second-placed Norwich are Leeds’ nearest challengers in the race for promotion to the Premier League.
The Canaries needed a stunning fightback to stay in touch with Marcelo Bielsa’s team and extend their unbeaten run to 12 matches.
Matty Cash put Forest ahead against the run of play in first-half stoppage time and Jack Robinson made it 2-0 on 64 minutes at Carrow Road.
When Cash added another 10 minutes later, there seemed no way back for Daniel Farke’s side.
Yet Mario Vrancic reduced the deficit on 77 minutes, before substitute Onel Hernandez struck twice in eight minutes of stoppage time to secure an unforgettable recovery.
