West Brom 3-0 Middlesbrough Highlights
Robert Koren scored twice as West Brom eased past Middlesbrough to climb off the foot of the Premier League table.
Chris Brunt set the Baggies on their way with a deflected strike as Boro appealed for offside.
Afonso Alves missed a series of chances for the visitors but a Koren strike that sliced off debutant Marc-Antoine Fortune made it 2-0 after the break.
Boro’s Didier Digard was then sent off for a late lunge and Koren added a third from Brunt’s fabulous pass.
Tony Mowbray’s side fully deserved their win but the first half was as even as it was open.
