Dean Ashton enhanced his England credentials with a powerful first-half strike but it was Scott Parker´s memorable last-minute winner which ensured West Ham picked up three fortunate points with a 2-1 win at Middlesbrough.

Ashton, with his fifth strike of the season in all competitions, and Parker provided the only moments of real quality in a scrappy Barclays Premier League match at the Riverside which Middlesbrough will feel aggrieved to have lost.

David Wheater put the hosts ahead with just before half-time after a fine lay-off from Jeremie Aliadiere but, while they were sorely lacking in inspiration, their endeavour should have been enough to earn them at least a point.
