Boro Beat Aston Villa 2-1

Boro Beat Aston Villa 2-1

Tuncay fired twice as Middlesbrough beat Aston Villa FC 2 - 1 at Villa Park today.

The victory at Aston Villa was Boro's second away win this season and also makes it one defeat in 6 games.

Boro move up to 8th in the Premier League after Tuncay capitalised on some poor Aston Villa defending. The first goal came in the 34th minute lashing home from six yards after Nicky Shorey failed to clear a cross.

Aston Villa then equilised 3 minutes later through a Steve Sidwell header, who was making his home premier league debut.

But with just 2 minutes to go, Sidwell's luck changed. His back pass set up Tuncay to go through one on one with Brad Friedel and cooly placed in the corner to send 3 points back to Teesside.
