Here is how Middlesbrough players fared against Leeds United at the Riverside Stadium this afternoon


Darren Randolph. Little to do in the first half. Made a key double block in the second half before being beaten at the death. 7.

Dael Fry. Rough first period. Improved on restart. 5

Daniel Ayala. Cleared his lines effectively and was strong. 7

Aden Flint. Left to rue a couple of big chances in the first period. Solid at the back. 7.

Ryan Shotton. Glory beckoned in the first half, but he fluffed his lines in front of goal. A couple of issues with Clarke. 7

Jonny Howson. Moved infield and put himself about and was involved a fair bit. 6

John-Obi Mikel. Excellent and produced a high-class midfield display. 8.

George Saville. Grew into the game and went close to firing a second goal in successive weekends. 7

Lewis Wing. Went close with a first-half drive and produced some fine moments, crowned with a great goal. 8.
