Leeds manager David Hockaday praises his side after their first win of the season against Middlesbrough.

Leeds United manager David Hockaday has praised his side after they secured their first win of the season with a 1-0 victory against Middlesborough.

Hockaday watched on as a late Billy Sharp goal at Elland Road gave Leeds the win.

He told reporters after the game: "It was a tough game, there were quite a few chances and it took a goal poacher to sneak the win.

"Boro are a good team, one of the form teams, and to come away with a clean sheet and three points, I can't ask for more."

Leeds will next host Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday evening.
