Curtis Main's 81st minute header separated the teams and Mowbray said: "It's nice to get a win, it's been a while for us in the league and we need to keep the points ticking along.

"It's nearly 20 years since we won at home against Leeds. It's a good achievement for this team and we deserved to win.

"Curtis is a young boy who is starting his career. He came to us as a free transfer from Darlington and some of the things he can do are breathtaking at times."
