Middlesbrough   1 - 2   Bristol City

Middlesbrough 1-2 Bristol City

Middlesbrough 1-2 Bristol City

Bristol City won for only the third time in the Championship this season to spoil Tony Mowbray's first game in charge as Middlesbrough manager.

Kris Boyd got the Mowbray era off to a great start, smashing home with his left foot after a Scott McDonald cross.

But Albert Adomah equalised for City with a brilliant volley into the bottom corner from Marvin Elliott's cross.

And Elliott stunned the home crowd with a 25-yard winner shortly after to lift City off the bottom of the table.

David Wheater should have equalised for Boro from Barry Robson's cross but tamely guided the ball straight at City keeper David James.

The defeat was Middlesbrough's fourth in as many league games and leaves Mowbray's new charges without a win in seven.

The match had started well enough for Boro, Boyd almost scoring within three minutes but his snap-shot flew wide of James' goal.

The veteran keeper was then at full stretch as he scrambled to keep out McDonald's turn and shot from the edge of the box.

James denied Boro again, smothering the ball at the feet of Luke Williams after Boyd had miss-kicked Mickael Tavares' header back across goal.

The visitors should have forged ahead after 18 minutes when Adomah's cross from the right was met by Jon Stead, who beat two defenders only to head over.

A lapse in concentration saw City fall behind in the 30th minute, McDonald providing an inch-perfect cross from the right for Boyd to volley home with his left foot.

City levelled five minutes later when Adomah's goal-bound shot cannoned off Robson and flew beyond keeper Jason Steele.

And the buoyant 19,039-strong crowd were silenced four minutes into the second half, when Elliott picked out the top, right-hand corner of Steele's goal from 20 yards.

Boyd, McDonald and Wheater all had opportunities to level but clear-cut chances were few for both sides for the remainder of the match.
