Middlesbrough run out comfortable winners despite missing an early penalty when David Armstrong fires his spot kick wide of John Lukic's goal. Armstrong makes amends by setting up Bosko Jankovic for the opener but Leeds reply instantly through Wayne Entwistle who had come on for the injured Brian Greenhoff. Armstrong gets on the scoresheet to make it 2-1 to the home side and Jankovic scores his second from David Hodgson's cross just 15 seconds after the break.

However, the visitors rally and equalise right at the end of the first half through a Garry Birtles header from a John Robertson cross and Trevor Francis seals the win after John Lukic is caught out by a corner.
