MIDDLESBROUGH striker Bart Ogbeche opened his scoring account for 2012 in the midweek win over Barnsley and is targeting another goal and a maximum return this weekend.

The injury-stricken 27-year-old came off the bench to notch against the Tykes and insists a win in Sunday’s home clash with Leeds United is key to maintaining Boro’s hopes for promotion.

“It’s going to be a massive game,” he said, “We’ve been doing well lately but they’ve also been doing well.

“They’re going to come here to make things hard for us.”
