Middlesbrough’s impressive run of form continued in the Championship on Saturday, as they ran out narrow 1-0 winners over Nottingham Forest at the Riverside.
Marvin Johnson scored the only goal of the match on 81 minutes, as Neil Warnock’s side held on to take an important three points on the day.
The result moves Middlesbrough up to fifth in the second-tier standings, and they’ll fancy their chances of mounting a surprise challenge for a top-six finish this term.
One player that caught the eye with a strong performance in the win over the Reds was young defender Nathan Wood, who made his fourth appearance of the season for the first-team.
