Southampton 3-3 Tottenham, Wolves 2-4 Leeds and more: football clockwatch – live
Right, that is from me. Thanks for joining me this afternoon, plenty more action to follow along with via the Guardian’s sports desk this evening though.
John Brewin was at St Mary’s to see Saints salvage a point:
Here is Peter Lansley’s take on the drama at Molineux:

Our new Scottish correspondent Simon emails in the full-time update:
Dundee United threw everything at it during ten minutes of added time against St Mirren, and should really have won it, but it finished 1-1 at Tannadice. Celtic came from 1-0 down to win 3-1 against Hibernian. Elie Youan’s red card proved to be decisive as the Hoops rallied in the second half.

Saints battled hard for that point and nearly lose it at the end as Perisic heads just wide with the last action of the game. For Spurs, this was a big opportunity missed.
This one will be worth watching back later. Leeds are out of the drop zone and Wolves’ progress under Julen Lopetegui stalls.
A point that suits neither side.
Easy win for Unai Emery’s side.
And now it is settled.
Forster goes the right way but he cannot get a hand on the penalty which goes high into the net.
Very soft, but Pape Sarr takes a wild swing to clear and Maitland-Niles steals in on the blindside and hits the deck. No hesitation from the referee, he points to the spot.
If this wasn’t done before, it is now. VAR check for offside, but eventually it stands.
Some game at Spotland, Charlie Austin has scored four goals for Swindon, but Rochdale are not out of it. Tthe hosts trail 3-4.
Leeds can now breathe a sigh of relief. Jonny goes over the ball and into Ayling’s ankle. That is a bad, bad foul. Not sure why VAR needed to look at that for so long, he’s off.
Jaconb Ramsey has buried the Cherries. Hard to see a way back here, but then I said that about Wolves…
Big save from Fraser Forster to deny Maitland-Niles but earns a corner for Saints. The first ball is cleared but Ward-Prowse hangs a second attempt up to the back post for Sekou Mara to nod back across goal where Walcott is on the spot to side-foot home.
Saints fail to clear from a corner and when Kulesevski hoists a cross back in Cristian Romero does enough to get the ball back to Perisic just inside the box to fire a volley home.
My call when Leeds 3-0 up is looking on very shaky ground. Cunha has his first goal since joining Wolves on loan from Atletico Madrid.
Both Ipswich and Portsmouth added second goals since the break against Shrewsbury and Bristol Rovers respectively.
Kulusevski stands up his man and whips in a cross, Kane gets above Walker-Peters and powers his header in. That is the England captain’s 12th goal in his last 14 games against Saints.
This is all over. Kristensen outmuscles his man and fires past Jose Sar.
All to play for! What a goal that is from Jonny, who takes advantage of Illan Meslier being well off his line to clear to loop a first-time volley in from more than 35 yards out.
Middlesbrough are now 2-0 up against Preston, Reading have equalised against Hull, Luton lead 1-0 at Sunderland and Wigan have levelled to make it 1-1 at Watford.
54 mins: VAR check for a penalty at St Mary’s. Peresic’s shot from the edge of the box its Maitland-Niles, the defenders hands were in that awkward body block position but he knew nothing about it. No penalty is the call, probably correct.
James Maddison’s clever pass gets Barnes in and the winger clips a smart finish past Raya in the Brentford goal.
This is becoming a big afternoon for Leeds. They stretch their lead with Ayling stooping to nod home at the far post as he inexplicably finds himself unmarked at a corner. Softer than soft that.
The second half has barely restarted and we are level. Walcott is played in down the right hand side, the winger gallops into the box and slides a ball across the six yard box for Adams to divert home off the far post. Great ball from Walcott and brave forward play from Adams.
Peeep! We are back underway for the second half across the 3pm kick-offs, apart from at St Mary’s where they are running slightly behind after playing seven minutes of added to deal with all of those injuries.
