Huddersfield Town were held at home by fellow promotion hopefuls MK Dons.
The visitors goal came about in a freak fashion as Gleeson's freekick deceived everyon and went straight into Ian Bennett's net.
Town had deservedly taken the lead on the stroke of half time through Jamie McCombe.

Lee Clark speaking to HTAFC.com
"We had a twenty minute spell where we looked anxious, but in the final quarter of the game I felt we came back strongly and maybe could have nicked it towards the death. They never really had possession where they could have hurt us - we restricted them to playing most of their football in front of us.
We started the game very well and deserved to take the lead. At the start of the second half they had a decent spell and scored a fortuitous goal, but Karl will say they deserved it for being positive and I wouldn't disagree. I haven't seen a replay of Jack's shot at the end, but I can't question the decision when I haven't seen it properly. Even if it was over the line it doesn't matter because it wasn't given."
MK Dons boss Karl Robinson
"Damien Johnson is fit. The only people I have got injured are Gary Roberts, who is flying following his surgery and we are looking at a shorter time of recovery with him; Danny Ward could potentially be available for Leyton Orient and Peter Clarke goes into hospital on Tuesday for his double hernia operation."
