Scunthorpe   0 - 2   Middlesbrough

Scunthorpe v Middlesbrough graphic

Scunthorpe 0-2 Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough have moved out of the Championship relegation zone after recording their first away win in the league since April at Scunthorpe.

Kris Boyd put Boro in control with a simple finish at the far post just 10 minutes into the first half.

And Scott McDonald added a second 13 minutes later with a curling shot that flew in off the post from 22 yards out.

Chris Dagnall, Michael Raynes and Josh Wright came close to scoring but were all denied by Boro keeper Jason Steele.

The visitors came into the game with a miserable away record but they enjoyed a dream start when Joe Bennett whipped in a low cross which Boyd tapped in at the far post.

McDonald gave the Teessiders a two-goal advantage, seizing on a Boyd pass to curl a shot beyond Scunthorpe goalkeeper Joe Murphy.

The home side tested Steele just before the half hour when Wright's stinging drive had to be tipped over.

And the Boro keeper pulled off a flying save to deflect Dagnall's powerful drive from distance over the bar.

The visitors had Steele to thank again when he beat away a volley from Raynes and the Iron continued to create chances after the break with Dagnall again coming close.

Middlesbrough held on though and almost grabbed a third as David Wheater got on the end of a low effort but keeper Murphy kept the ball out with his legs.
