Britt Assombalonga hailed a team effort as Boro picked up our first win under head coach Jonathan Woodgate.
The striker headed in his second of the season, and it proved to be the match-winner at the Riverside.
"It's not just about me, the whole team and everyone put a shift in - it was one of those games," he said.
"We've played better and not got results.
"We needed to get off the mark as a team, and I'm just happy I've got the goal.
"I could see how much it meant to the whole group."
