Middlesbrough secured their first home win of the season as goals from Gaston Ramirez and Stewart Downing saw off AFC Bournemouth.
Ramirez opened the scoring six minutes before half-time, finishing low with his right foot after a run from the halfway line.
Downing doubled Boro's advantage on 56 minutes with his first Premier League goal for the club since May 2008, finishing off a headed knockdown by Alvaro Negredo.
AFC Bournemouth pushed hard for a goal but rarely threatened Victor Valdes’s goal.
Middlesbrough climb to 13th, two points behind their opponents, who remain 10th.
