Sheff Wed   1 - 3   Middlesbrough

Sheffield Wednesday v Middlesbrough

Sheffield Wednesday 1-3 Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough came from behind to beat Sheffield Wednesday thanks to an own goal from Darren Purse and strikes from Jeremie Aliadiere and Adam Johnson.

Wednesday went ahead inside two minutes with Luke Varney smashing the ball home in off the crossbar from 18-yards out.

Boro were level when Purse headed Johnson's curling cross past Lee Grant.

Aliadiere gave Boro the lead when clipping the ball over Grant before Johnson pounced in the penalty area to bury a low shot into the bottom corner.


Sheffield Wednesday manager Brian Laws:

"United have had a tough game too, so it goes for both sides. We've got to regroup and get ourselves ready and put things in context.

"Middlesbrough have had a flying start to the season and they're going to hurt more teams than most.

"Their winger Adam Johnson showed his class, he's been in fine form."

Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate:
"Adam Johnson is a special talent, he was outstanding tonight.

"There were some moments when he relieved so much pressure by just picking the ball up and beating people.

"You win on team performance and it had to be gritty and resilient but a couple of moments of class won us the game."
