Manchester United beat Middlesbrough 1-0

Manchester United beat Middlesbrough 1-0 at Old Trafford last night thanks to a 69th minute goal from Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov. The result moved the Red Devils up into third place in the Premier League.

But Sir Alex Ferguson's side were made to work hard for the victory against a dogged Boro eleven. Berbatov had been guilty of a number of misses in the first half before he finally hit the back of the net.

Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo also squandered good scoring opportunities before Michael Carrick set up Berbatov for the winner. It was a tough blow for Middlesbrough and their goalkeeper Ross Turnbull who was in inspired form.
