Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate was pleased to see Tuncay Sanli break his duck for the club in yesterday's 1-1 draw with Reading.

"He's been desperate to get that first goal, took it really well and he's actually disappointed he didn't get the winner."

He was also glowing about the performance of rookie goalkeeper Ross Turnbull, who was almost faultless in only his third Premier League appearance for the club and first for 18 months.

Southgate said: "For somebody who has not played for the first team in a league game for a couple of years, I thought he was commanding of his penalty area, which was pleasing."
