Keith Kettleborough: Midfielder whose artistry and industriousness put him on the fringes of the 1966 England football squad

With his balding head, pallid features and scuttling gait, Keith Kettleborough didn't cut a glamorous figure on the football pitch, even during his prime with Sheffield United in the first half of the 1960s. No matter: the slim Yorkshireman was one of the game's true craftsmen, a subtly constructive midfield general who brought to his work an appealing cocktail of artistry and industry which, during mid-decade as plans were being laid to capture the World Cup, prompted the England manager Alf Ramsey to call him into his training squad.

League round-up: Lita torments Royals as Boro bounce back

Leroy Lita returned to Reading, where he spent four seasons before joining Middlesbrough, and rekindled Boro's hopes of a swift return to the Premiership by scoring the second goal in a 2-0 win. After 12 minutes Sean St Ledger headed in Adam Johnson's corner, but Lita's 55th-minute solo effort was more spectacular. Gathering a pass on halfway, he outpaced Darren O'Dea and Ivar Ingimarsson and ran on to beat Adam Federici in the Reading goal. Boro moved up to third.
