On a day when most of their rivals were not in action due to the arctic weather, Leeds could only draw 1-1 with second bottom Wycombe Wanderers.
Leeds produced a distinctly ordinary display and wetr, in truth, fortunate not to lose their year-long unbeaten record.
It had taken United just four minutes to go ahead courtesy of Jonny Howson, the midfielder hitting a shot that Scott Shearer allowed to bobble over his outstretched hand and into the net.
The goal should have been the signal for United to laye siege to the visitors goal but, instead, it was Wycombe who bossed the rest of the first half.
Gary Waddock's side twice hit the post in quick succession, JP Pittman and Scott Davies the players left holding their heads in frustration.
The latter would have been particularly embarrassing for Leeds with the ball striking the woodwork direct from a corner after the home defence had failed to clear.
Davies also went close with a 32nd minute shot after being picked out by John Mousinho, before Wycombe drew level just after the hour.
Scott Davies started the move with a sublime ball that picked out the on-rushing Pittman who drilled a low shot across Casper Ankergren and into the net to ensure Wycombe gained deserved reward for their efforts.
