Gaston Ramirez scored an impressive double as Middlesbrough comfortably defeated Wolves 2-1 at the Riverside Stadium on Friday to move top of the Championship.

The on-loan Southampton midfielder’s opening goal arrived on 24 minutes when the visitors failed to clear a free-kick and he headed home Adam Clayton’s cross from close range.

Ramirez made it two on 56 minutes with a wonderful curling effort from the left-hand corner of the penalty area which found the far corner. 

Wolves got a late consolation when Boro defender Ben Gibson headed into his own net with one minute remaining, but home keeper Dimitrios Konstantopoulos did not have a single save to make in a match that was not as close as the scoreline suggests.

The win puts Aitor Karanka’s men two points clear of second-placed Burnley, who play rivals Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, while Wolves slip down to 14th position after their fourth loss in five league games.
