With Leeds United next up at the Riverside this evening (7.45pm), here’s a look back to a classic clash at Ayresome Park.
Boro stunned Howard Wilkinson’s Whites, the reigning league Champions, in the early days of the inaugural Premier League season with boss Lennie Lawrence hailing it the most professional performance he had seen in ten years of management.
Razor-sharp Paul Wilkinson converted two pin-point Tommy Wright crosses within an incredible 57-second spell, twice catching the visitors cold in the first ten minutes of the match.
Former Leeds man Wright added another goal with a towering header in the second half before another of the Elland Road club’s old boys, John Hendrie, streaked away for a fourth.
Enigmatic Frenchman Eric Cantona smashed one in in reply, but the consolation strike couldn’t spoil the party for the home crowd.
