West Bromwich Albion 0-0 Middlesbrough

Cristhian Stuani


Cristhian Stuani came closest to scoring for Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough maintained their unbeaten Premier League start in a dull goalless draw at West Brom.

Home left-back Brendan Galloway surged forward but struck tamely at Boro goalkeeper Brad Guzan, the best chance of a dour first half.

Craig Dawson headed narrowly wide from a corner for Albion, while visiting striker Cristhian Stuani shot straight at Ben Foster from a tight angle.

Daniel Ayala’s poked effort from close range was kept out by Foster later on.

This was a painstaking 0-0 Sunday afternoon encounter at The Hawthorns, in a match lacking in quality and creativity, but one where the visitors will be the happier side.
