Goals from Britt Assombalonga and Marvin Johnson proved enough to account for Derby County as Boro returned to winning ways at the Riverside.

The 3-0 success was the first time Boro have scored three at home in the league since August 2018 and it was the first home win against Derby since 2016.

Had it not been for good saves by visiting goalkeeper David Marshall, Boro would have run out even more convincing winners.
