Derby v Middlesbrough

Derby 3-1 Middlesbrough

Derby   3 - 1   Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough's poor start to the season continued as two moments of brilliance from Kris Commons handed Derby victory at Pride Park.

Kris Boyd gave Boro the lead when he glanced in a header before Commons saw his penalty saved by Jason Steele who had fouled Shefki Kuqi in the area.

However, Shaun Barker equalised for the Rams with a glancing header before Commons made it 2-1 from 20 yards.

He then played a one-two from a corner before chipping in his second.

The victory saw Derby leapfrog pre-season promotion favourites Middlesbrough, who are languishing in 19th with 10 points from nine games.

Boro should have taken the lead after only 17 seconds but defender David Wheater headed Barry Robson's corner wide.

Derby then went close themselves when Steele pushed Robbie Savage's free-kick wide before an unmarked Kuqi headed wide from eight yards out.

After Boro took the lead, it was Derby who dominated. The home side should have added more to their tally, but first Alberto Bueno was denied by Steele before centre-back Wheater was forced to make a last-ditch tackle to prevent Tomasz Cywka from scoring.

Gordon Strachan Middlesbrough side should have reduced the two-goal deficit in the second half, but Stephen Bywater kept out Leroy Lita's close-range header with his legs.
