The 28 year old wide man bagged his eighth of season to send Boro one point adrift of the top with a game in hand.

Aitor’s Karanka’s men headed to the Craven Cottage four points adrift of league leaders Burnley having played two games fewer but soon reduced their point deficit with a 3rd minute goal from their Ghanaian forward.
Former Liverpool winger Steward Downing swung in an inviting cross from the left wing which was met with precision by the onrushing Albert Adomah to put the Teesiders ahead.
The Riverside outfit added to their goal tally midway through the first half thanks to Leadbitter spot kick to seal the three points for the promotion chasing visitors in the Coca Cola Championship.
Burnely maintains their place at the top of the log with 65 points, one more than Middlesborough who has a game in hand.
The goal was Adomah’s fifth league goal in 29 appearances and his eight of the season so far.
