  1. Goodnight

    FT: Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Aden Flint

    Well... I'm sorry that wasn't the classic we all hoped it would be, but that's football.

    Leeds kept in check by Tony Pulis' Boro - I'm sure many visiting teams to Elland Road will be trying to emulate that display.

    We'll be back tomorrow afternoon, when I can promise PLENTY of goals.

  2. Post update

    FT: Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    I'm not sure which match Liam Cooper was watching, because it certainly wasn't the same one as me.

    But both sides remain unbeaten in the Championship and will stay first and second no matter what happens in the rest of the weekend's matches.

  3. 'We had a right good go'

    FT: Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Leeds' Liam Cooper told Sky Sports:

    "It was a good game to watch, with plenty of chances - we wanted to nick it but one of those things.

    "We had a right good go and it was a great game."

  4. 'We had to graft'

    FT: Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Boro's Adam Clayton told Sky Sports:

    "We had a gameplan because Leeds are good this season.

    "We dug in and had to graft, but we've got the result away from home.

    "I think we'll be the happier of the two teams."


    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    He shoots - but it's straight at Darren Randolph.

    And that's it!

    Luke Ayling came closest for Leeds - seeing a header cleared off the line, while Jonny Howson and Britt Assombalonga went closest for Boro.

  6. YELLOW CARD (Flint)

    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Aden Flint halts a Patrick Bamford run and Leeds have a free-kick in a threatening position.

    Does Barry Douglas shoot or cross one in?

  7. Post update

    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Aden Flint

    But Boro are far too streetwise to give away a silly goal in the dying moments.

    The ball is cleared and Leeds are building slowly from the back again - not long now.

  8. Post update

    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Ezgjan Alioski has an effort blocked by Ryan Shotton and Leeds have a corner.


    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Leeds make their third and final sub - Stuart Dallas on for Jack Harrison.

    I'd be very surprised if we see the deadlock broken in the final few minutes here.


    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough


    Patrick Bamford replaces Kemar Roofe and the travelling Boro fans aren't impressed. Bamford swapped Boro for Leeds a few weeks ago.

    He has five minutes of stoppage time to do something.

  11. CLOSE!

    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Daniel Ayala has been first to every Boro ball into the Leeds box.

    This time he heads from an acute angle and Bailey Peacock-Farrell is well-placed to block it wide for another corner for the visitors.

    Meanwhile, Leeds coach Pablo Quiroga has been booked for some touchline antics.


    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Finally a change...

    Leeds bring on Pontus Jansson for Gaetano Berardi, who's injured, and he'll defend a Boro corner straight away.

  13. Post update

    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    It's gone scrappy at Elland Road - neither team can hold onto the ball.

    Doesn't bode well for the last five minutes (plus added time).

  14. Post update

    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Kemar Roofe

    Eight minutes of normal time remain.

    We've had four shots on target in all and no really big chances for either side.

    You have to think there's one big moment left in this first v second clash?

  15. Post update

    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Ball in by Muhamed Besic, met with a thumping header by Daniel Ayala but the direction is all wrong and it sails wide.

    Boro haven't conceded in the league for more than eight hours - you can see why.

    Leeds lost 2-0 at home to 10-man Preston in the cup in midweek - you can see why.

    Ayala fouls Mateusz Klich and is booked.


    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Liam Cooper once again fouls Boro striker Britt Assombalonga, who reminds the ref that it isn't the first time.

    The yellow card comes out again - a good position for the visitors to put a ball in the box.

  17. Get Involved


    Graham Pearce: Even if both of these teams get promoted, without massive investment they will not survive in the Premier League. This is school boy kick and rush.

  18. Post update

    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough


    We're 75 minutes into a pretty mediocre game and still neither manager has made any subs.

    That says to me that both sides are relatively happy with this game heading towards a draw.

    Is either team willing to risk losing this by trying to win it?

  19. YELLOW CARD (Berardi)

    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Boro play the ball into Britt Assombalonga - who has his back to goal - and Gaetano Berardi hacks him down from behind.

    Unsurprisingly, the Leeds defender becomes the fifth player to be shown a yellow card.

  20. Post update

    Leeds 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Stewart Downing has had a quiet night for Middlesbrough but cuts in onto his dangerous left foot and has a go from range...

    However the shot flies well over the bar and Leeds try to mount another attack.
