Numbers game: Middlesbrough (A)

We break down the statistics from City's 3-1 win away to Middlesbrough.

Famara Diédhiou struck twice, grabbing a milestone 50th goal in Robins colours in the process, while assiting Nahki Wells as City raced into a much-deserved 3-0 lead by half-time.

There was more about the hosts after the break and Dael Fry tapped home from close-range with 10 minutes to go but City were able to see out victory and end their recent poor run of form.

And new City Manager Nigel Pearson was in the stands to watch his side earn the three points on Teesside.
