Middlesbrough   2 - 1   Derby

Highlights - Middlesbrough 2-1 Derby

Middlesbrough 2-1 Derby

Middlesbrough boosted their survival hopes in the Championship by coming from behind to beat Derby County.

In front of the lowest league crowd at the Riverside, only 13,712, Derby went ahead when Nicky Bailey felled Jamie Ward and he scored from the spot.

But Boro dominated the second half and after Frankie Fielding made three fine saves they levelled when Seb Hines headed in Tony McMahon's free-kick.

Boro won it in the 89th minute when Merouane Zemmama's shot deflected in.

It was the home team's just deserts for a much-improved second-half display and they now sit six points above the relegation zone, level on points with Derby in 19th.

With goalkeepers Jason Steele and Danny Coyne both injured, Boro boss Tony Mowbray gave a debut to on-loan Nottingham Forest keeper Paul Smith, having let striker Kris Boyd join Forest as part of the deal.

But it was Fielding who was much the busier of the two keepers, saving impressively from Scott McDonald in the first half as Derby struggled to stamp their mark on the game.

They did go in front thanks to Bailey's moment of recklessness, but the defender nearly atoned for his error when he lashed just over and, after Conor Doyle had a goal ruled out for offside early in the second half, Derby failed to threaten again.

Leroy Lita, McDonald and Marvin Emnes all forced superb saves from Fielding and Rhys Williams's header was cleared off the line as Boro poured forward, with Hines' header deservedly drawing them level.

Only a magnificent save from Fielding kept out a Barry Robson header and that looked like earning Derby a share of the spoils until McMahon's ball into the box was cleared as far as Zemmama 18 yards out, the Moroccan's shot taking a deflection on its way in.
