Live on Sky Sports: Middlesbrough v Leeds United

26 September 2015

Sky Sports' Football League coverage continues on Sunday lunchtime when Middlesbrough welcome Leeds United to the Riverside Stadium.

The Sky Bet Championship match gets under way at 1:15pm and promises to be an intriguing encounter with both sides proving hard to beat so far in 2015/16.

Ahead of the weekend, Middlesbrough sit second in the division and are breathing down the necks of league leaders Brighton & Hove Albion.

That pressure is the result of four straight victories in the league, and they took their form into the Capital One Cup in midweek with a 3-0 win over Wolves.

As for Leeds, they are further back in 11th but can take plenty of encouragement from the fact that they, like Boro, have lost just once this term.

The Whites began the season with four consecutive draws but have picked up seven points from the available 12 since, with their most recent outing producing a 2-1 win against MK Dons.

The visitors will be buoyed by recent results at Middlesbrough too, with Boro only picking up one home victory against Leeds since 1992.

Three of the last five matches at the Riverside have seen Leeds come away with maximum points, including last term when an early Alex Mowatt strike settled matters.

Can Leeds continue their good form in the North East, or will Aitor Karanka's Boro prevail? Follow the action on Sky Sports and via our divisional Twitter feed, @SkyBetChamp.
