Late Grant Leadbitter penalty sees Middlesbrough to win over QPR

20 November 2015

Grant Leadbitter struck a late penalty to see Middlesbrough to a 1-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers in the Sky Bet Championship.

Three minutes into injury-time of a tense affair in the North East, Leadbitter coolly converted from the spot after QPR midfielder Leroy Fer had handled on the line.

12 - Grant Leadbitter has scored each of his last 12 penalties for Middlesbrough. Safe.

Fer was sent off, and the Boro captain kept his nerve to send his side up to third in the division ahead of Saturday’s action.
