The Saddlers looked capable of taking all three points when they went ahead 11 minutes from the end, Sam Parkin hammering in a penalty after Rui Marques had brought down Steve Jones.

But with nearly 4,000 away fans cheering them on, Leeds bounced back to equalise in the 83rd minute, Bradley Johnson hammering the ball at the far post when goalkeeper Clayton Ince failed to cut out an Andy Robinson corner.

Leeds completed the job with four minutes remaining, Beckford turning central defender Manny Smith before smashing a low left-footed drive into the net.

It was tough on Walsall who had battled all the way but Leeds always had that extra bit of class moving forward and created the better chances in both halves, Ince pulling off one great save in the 17th minute from a Michael Doyle volley.
