Norwich   1 - 0   Middlesbrough

Norwich v Middlesbrough

Norwich 1-0 Middlesbrough

Simeon Jackson's strike sealed a narrow win for Norwich and condemned managerless Middlesbrough to their sixth successive away league loss.

Elliott Ward should have given the hosts the lead early on only to scoop his effort over the bar from six yards.

But Jackson pounced with a tap-in a minute before the break to hand City a deserved lead.

Middlesbrough nearly snatched an equaliser in injury time but substitute Scott McDonald fired wide.

In truth, it could have been more for the Canaries, who saw Jackson volley over another chance while Andrew Crofts shot against the post.

Middlesbrough, who parted company with boss Gordon Strachan earlier in the week, are now in the Championship relegation zone and without an away league win since April.
