Andrew Johnson and James McFadden took advantage of Middlesbrough´s lack of finesse in the final third to earn Everton a 2-0 win in their Barclays Premier League clash at the Riverside.

Second-half strikes from the Everton pair were enough to ensure a win for David Moyes´ European hopefuls but it was Boro´s inability to find a final ball - as well as a fine save from Tim Howard - which set up the win.

Stewart Downing had the best of the hosts´ chances but Boro boss Gareth Southgate will look on enviously at the coolly-taken goals which kept the Toffees on course for the UEFA Cup.
