Cardiff claim Boro win

Published Add your comment

Chris Burke scored the only goal of the game as Cardiff moved up to third in the Coca-Cola Championship with a hard-fought victory over Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.

Burke broke the deadlock shortly after the hour mark with a curling free-kick from the left flank that evaded everyone on its way into the net.

David Wheater headed against the crossbar for Boro moments later and Leroy Lita saw an effort cleared off the line by Adam Matthews, but the hosts could not find a way through to leave boss Gordon Strachan still looking for his first win on home soil.
