Ghana winger Albert Adomah played full-throttle as Middlesbrough beat Norwich 1-0 on Friday night away to provisionally go top of the Championship table.
With Bournemouth and Watford in action on Saturday, Boro seized the chance to put the pressure on the chasing pack and move a point clear of the Cherries.
The visitors capitalised on a strong start, forcing Alex Tettey to flick into his own net from a corner.
Norwich dominated in the second half but are now two points off the top with two games to play.
The Canaries are guaranteed a play-off spot but automatic promotion is now out of their hands.
Middlesbrough remaining games: 25 April ? Fulham (away), 2 May ? Brighton (home).
