Archie Gray Wins Boost Player of the Match Against Middlesbrough

Young star puts in another impressive display

Leeds United star Archie Gray was the latest recipient of the Boost Player of the Match award, after an "outstanding" performance against Middlesbrough.

The Whites have now won seven consecutive home games at Elland Road, after defeating Boro 3-2 on Saturday.

The game didn't get off to the best start for the Leeds, as the visitors took the lead after just three minutes, through Emmanuel Latte Lath.

However, it would take Leeds just four minutes to not only equalise, but take the lead, after goals from Dan James and Crysencio Summerville, turned the game in the home side's favour.

Over half an hour would pass before another goal was scored, Joel Piroe firing in from the penalty spot, before Latte Lath pulled one back to make it 3-2 at the break.

A tense second half saw Leeds and Middlesbrough's defences kept on their feet, the opposition would have a man sent off, but the score would remain the same, with the Whites walking away with the three points.   Archie Gray racing down the right wing with the ball at his feet


Having impressed every time he has been called upon this season, Gray started at right back during the 3-2 win at Elland Road.

Playing the full 90 minutes, Gray made 69 touches, and had an impressive 96% accuracy rate, as he completed 44 of his 46 passes. 

Putting in a strong defensive display, the 17 year old won 8 of his 12 duels, made 6 recoveries and 2 interceptions.

Such was Gray's impressive performance, 52% of fans voted for the right back, ahead of goalscorers Dan James (9%), Crysencio Summerville (9%), Joe Rodon (8%) and Glen Kamara (8%).
