LONDON (Reuters) – Middlesbrough moved second in the English Championship as they eased to a 2-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers on Wednesday.

George Saville capitalised on a defensive mix-up to put Tony Pulis’s side in front and Britt Assombalonga sealed victory in stoppage time as Boro cut Leeds United’s lead to one point.

Sheffield United moved into sixth spot after a 0-0 draw with Birmingham City.

Big-spending Nottingham Forest won for only the second time in the league this season, with summer signings Lewis Grabban and Joao Carvalho on target in a 2-1 defeat of Sheffield Wednesday that moved them into mid-table.
