Scunthorpe   0 - 2   Middlesbrough

Two goals from Adam Johnson helped Middlesbrough maintain their unbeaten start to life in the Championship.

The England Under-21 winger opened the scoring with a delightful volley from just inside the area.

Johnson then scored from the spot at the second attempt, having seen his first effort saved by Joe Murphy only to be felled in going for the rebound.

Scunthorpe pressed late on, but Boro held on to record a third consecutive clean sheet.

Scunthorpe manager Nigel Adkins:

"I think when we analyse the video and when we analyse the last time we were in the Championship and the penalty decisions that went against us that weren't penalties, is there a trait coming out there?

"The turning point for the scoreline is the penalty, it's not a penalty.

"Michael O'Connor has tracked his runner, it's a fantastic tackle and the referee has made a mistake there. Joe Murphy makes the save and the second one is a penalty in my view because Joe has made a fantastic save but he's dived at the player's feet who has just got to the ball first.

"The second is a penalty, the first is not. But great credit to the players because we kept taking the game to Middlesbrough."

Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate:

"I think it was a game that a few people questioned for us. It was a very tight pitch and there wasn't a lot of space to play in. You have to earn the right to play and we did that.

"We stood up to the physical challenge and that's not to say that Scunthorpe were over-physical. They work you and they make it difficult for you.

"We came here with a lot of respect for them and we needed to make sure we were on our mettle.

"In the end, we have got players that, if our attitude and discipline is right, are quality players."
