          In their last five games in all competitions, Middlesbrough have two wins and three draws.

          Southampton took an early lead through Adam Armstrong who found the back of the net in the 12th minute. Despite having 37% of the possession and three shots on target, Middlesbrough finally managed to find the back of the net through Emmanuel Latte Lath in the 90th minute to rescue a 1 - 1 draw.

          The visit from Sheffield Wednesday saw Middlesbrough restrict The Owls to just one shot on target. An own goal from Michael Ihiekwe and a goal from Isaiah Jones gave Middlesbrough the 2 - 0 win.

          Boro picked up another 2 - 0 win, this time against Swansea. Latte Lath opened the scoring in the added time of the first half and added another in the 79th minute to give Middlesbrough the 2 - 0 win over a Swansea side who had just one shot on target.

          The trip to Hull saw Latte Lath on the scoresheet again, this time opening the scoring in the fourth minute. However, both Jaden Philogene and Jean Michael Seri scored to give Hull the 2 - 1 lead at halftime. Finn Isaac Azaz popped up with a goal in the 71st minute to grab a 2 - 2 draw for Boro.

          The last time out for Middlesbrough was against top of the league Ipswich. Latte Lath was among the goals yet again for Middlesbrough but a goal from Massimo Luongo just ten minutes later forced the 1 - 1 draw.

          Leeds bounced back against Hull City the next time out. Sam Byram gave Leeds the lead in the ninth minute but Fabio Carvalho equalised before halftime. However, a late penalty from Summerville and an even later goal from Dan James gave Leeds the 3 - 1 win.

          Despite Leeds having 70% of the possession and eight shots on target, goals from Ellis Simms and Haji Wright gave Coventry the 2 - 0 lead early in the second half. Joel Piroe did score late on for Leeds, but Coventry held on for the 2 - 1 win.

          The visit from Sunderland saw Leeds register just one shot on target, even with 70% of the possession. Sunderland had just three shots on target, and neither side could find the back of the net in the 0 - 0 draw.
