Middlesbrough   3 - 3   Leicester

Middlesborough v Leicester highlights

Middlesborough 3-3 Leicester

Ayegbeni Yakubu scored a hat-trick but could not help 10-man Leicester to a win against Middlesbrough.

The Foxes took the lead with a Yakubu tap-in before Marvin Emnes equalised from Richard Smallwood's pass.

Yakubu poked in and then grabbed his third from 12 yards before a volley from Rhys Williams reduced the deficit.

Julio Arca had a penalty saved after a handball by Jeffrey Bruma, who was sent off, but Boro did make it 3-3 thanks to Stephen McManus's injury-time header.

Leicester made a good start and created their first chance after two minutes when debutant Diomansy Kamara headed over from 10 yards.

Yakubu then put them ahead by tapping in Richie Wellens' right-wing cross.

Boro equalised when Smallwood robbed Matt Oakley, after a poor pass by Patrick Van Aanholt, and set up Emnes to finish from 12 yards.

Yakubu also had an effort cleared by Andrew Davies before restoring City's lead in the third minute of first half injury-time after Bruma headed Paul Gallagher's corner back across goal.

And he completed his hat-trick four minutes after the break by beating Paul Smith from 12 yards following Darius Vassell's pass.

Williams replied by flicking the ball up and volleying home from 25 yards before substitute Merouane Zemmama came close to equalising with a 30-yard free-kick that hit the post.

Boro had another chance to level, this time from the penalty spot after handball by Bruma, who was sent off after Chris Weale saved Julio Arca's effort.

Emnes then hit the upright and it looked like Tony Mowbray's side would leave their home ground pointless before McManus headed home Tony McMahon's corner.
