An own goal by Norwich helped to put Middlesbrough back at the top of the table, with just two games of the Championship season to go.

About 1,000 fans travelled to Norfolk to watch the crucial match against a side also vying for promotion to the Premier League.

The winning goal came early in the match and was claimed by Albert Adomah, although it had already crossed the line and was recorded as an own goal from Alex Tettey.

Middlesbrough have not yet secured promotion, with Bournemouth and Watford also in contention.
