Middlesbrough 2-1 Coventry

Middlesbrough 2-1 Coventry

Middlesbrough earned a hard-fought win over Coventry City thanks to Tarmo Kink's last-gasp curler.

The visitors took an early lead from Lukas Jutkiewicz's simple finish after Clive Platt's clever approach play.

But mid-table Boro got a deserved equaliser in the 25th minute when Julio Arca latched on to Leroy Lita's pass to unleash a superb 20-yard strike.

With the game seemingly over, Kink hit the late winner with an excellent left-foot effort past Keiren Westwood.

Despite the sides having little to play for, the encounter was played at a high tempo throughout with plenty of attacking intent on display.

Jutkiewicz's eighth goal of the season owed everything to Platt, who cleverly worked his way into the area before chipping over the on-rushing Paul Smith to leave Jutkiewicz with the easiest of tap-ins.

But Middlesbrough equalised when Arca took advantage of some poor defending from the visitors for his second goal in two games.

The home side controlled proceedings after the break, with Marvin Emnes twice seeing goalbound efforts blocked by Jordan Clarke.

Lita thought he had won it for Boro late on, but his effort was ruled offside.

However, Kink ensured Tony Mowbray's side took all three points as he instinctively put the ball beyond the reach of the outstretched Coventry keeper's arms.
