Leeds United fans agreed with Sky Sports on Monday night, as they voted in their numbers to name Crysencio Summerville as their Boost Player of the Match against Middlesbrough.

The winger scored twice in the 4-3 win at the Riverside, including the crucial fourth which sealed the three points after a thrilling encounter between the two sides.

Michael Carrick's Middlesbrough side took an early lead through Isaiah Jones, before Crysencio Summerville stepped up to convert from the penalty spot seven minutes later.

Goals from Patrick Bamford and Willy Gnonto followed for the Whites, whilst Latte Lath also grabbed a goal for the hosts, with the score standing at 3-2 before the break.

Crysencio increased Leeds' lead in the second half, Georginio and Junior Firpo combining to set the Dutch winger off on a run that would culminate in a brilliant goal.

Latte Lath would score again in the closing stages of the game, but Leeds held on for a 4-3 win in Teeside.

Summerville, 22, also earned the distinction of scoring his 20th goal of the season, the youngest player to do so since Michael Bridges (21) in 1999/00.

Voting was slightly closer than previous Player of the Match polls, with Summerville (40%), followed by Junior Firpo (23%) and Willy Gnonto (12%), in second and third respectively.
