Boro on Championship summit

Published Add your comment

Promotion chasing Middlesbrough lead the npower Championship after defeating Sheffield Wednesday 3-1 in front of their biggest home crowd in over three years.

Justin Hoyte's magical opener was witnessed by 28,229 fans on Teesside, before a controversial equaliser from Gary Madine temporarily tethered Boro back to second place.

But Ishmael Miller and second-half substitute Lukas Jutkiewicz scored the goals to edge their side above Crystal Palace, who must wait until Saturday's game at Peterborough to try and reclaim top spot.
