Boro open with victory

Middlesbrough opened their pre-season campaign with a 1-0 victory against Portuguese second division side Farense on the Algarve.

Mustapha Carayol scored their winner when collecting Andy Halliday's through pass midway through the second-half.

Emmanuel Ledesma and Lukas Jutkiewicz had both seen early efforts blocked while goalkeeper Jayson Leutweiler was only forced into a couple of routine collections at the other end.
