  • And the referee blows his whistle to give Leeds their first win of the season and give Hockaday his first three points in charge.

  • Leeds are living dangerously late on and fail to get out of their penalty area, but the assistant saves them and flags for offside.

  • Boro are looking desperate at the moment and are looking to long-range efforts to get the leveller.

  • The fourth official indicates four more minutes left to be played for Hockaday to claim his first league win as Leeds boss.

  • GOAL! SHARP! The debutant grabs the opening goal and possibly the winner after reacting first to a mistake from Mejias after Tonge's long-range shot to tap home.

  • Leeds also make a change with Cook coming on for Austin.

  • Williams takes the place of Tomlin for Middlesbrough.

  • Boro are looking to keep hold of the ball at this late stage in the match, but Leeds with Sharp's pace continues to threaten on the break.

  • Leeds almost make Boro pay for the referee's error and the set piece finds an unmarked Sharp, but the striker heads the ball off target at the back post.

  • In quick succession Friend goes into the book himself with a lunging challenge on Austin, but he will feel very unlucky after he did get a foot on the ball.

  • Boro are definitely looking the more threatening of the two sides at the moment, but in their enthusiasm to win the ball, Leadbitter goes through the back of Bianchi to get himself booked.

  • Both teams look to make substitutions with Boro taking off Reach for Nsue, while Leeds opt to replace Ajose with Poleon.

  • Kike is forced to hit a speculative effort from just outside the area, but the ball sails well over the bar.

  • Great awareness to nip in and stop the Spaniard by Warnock who has kept his side in the game on a number of occasions.

  • Kike again causes trouble in the Leeds area but Warnock is on hand again to stop the threat developing.

  • Both sides are struggling to maintain possession and have resorted to going long.

  • Kike looks to get around Pearce but the defender does well to shield the ball and draw a foul from the striker.

  • Clayton makes his return to Elland Road for his new club and isn't given the warmest of receptions from the crowd as he replaces Whitehead.

  • Byram and Omeruo collide inside the box with a Leeds cry for a penalty but the referee views it as a honest coming together and waves play on.

  • After a sustained attack Boro come away with a corner which is taken by Leadbitter and after being kept alive Silvestri grabs hold of the ball.
