Middlesbrough boss Garry Monk was reunited with former assistant Pep Clotet last night.

Clotet was Monk's right hand man at Swansea City and most recently Leeds United.

Monk is now on his first job in management without Clotet, who is taking on a head coach role of his own at Oxford United.

And the two teams met last night in a pre-season friendly, pitching them up against each other for the first time.

The game ended in a 0-0 draw, a result League One side Oxford United will be far happier with.

It could so easily have been very different for the duo, who led Leeds to the brink of the Championship play-offs.

They ended up finishing in seventh place, just missing out, and instead of working together in the Premier League, the pair have now gone their separate routes.
