Alvaro Negredo’s brace helped Middlesbrough return to winning ways as they beat Swansea City at the Riverside.
The striker broke the deadlock on 18 minutes, expertly finishing Adam Clayton’s cross past Lukasz Fabianski.
Negredo doubled the lead from the penalty spot 11 minutes later after Jordi Amat’s foul on Adam Forshaw.
Marten de Roon’s first goal for Boro just before the hour ended any chances of a comeback for Swansea, who had only two shots on target.
Boro rise to 14th, six points ahead of Swansea who are 19th.
