Curtis Main scores and sees red as Middlesbrough defeat Leeds United 1-0 at the Riverside Stadium.

Middlesbrough have recorded a 1-0 victory over Leeds United in an entertaining encounter at the Riverside Stadium.

Neil Warnock's men were the better team in the first half, creating a number of opportunities to open the scoring.

David Norris, Steve Morison and Luke Varney all went close, but none could find a way past Jason Steele in the Boro goal.

The best chance of all fell to Ross McCormack, but the 26-year-old saw his effort cleared off the line by Jonathan Woodgate.

Leeds were then denied by another goal-line clearance just moments after the interval, as this time Morison saw his header kept out.

The hosts began to threaten as the second half wore on, and Paddy Kenny was called upon to make a smart double save.

However, he could not keep a sheet clean as he was beaten by Curtis Main's looping header with eight minutes remaining.

Boro finished the match with 10 men as the goalscorer received his marching orders, but they were able to hold out for all three points.
