Reds march on as Boro are left complaining..

United continued their excellent league form with an important 2-1 win away at Middlesbrough on Saturday, courtesy of a controversial first half penalty won by Ronaldo and converted by Saha. The home side hit back after the interval through James Morrison after Heinze failed to effectively clear the ball. But not long after the restart United got the vital winner from the head of Darren Fletcher after good work by Ronaldo and Giggs, in truth it was no more than United deserved. After the game all the talk centred on the penalty. Gareth Southgate the Boro boss complained that Ronaldo is a 'serial diver', as you'd expect Fergie didn't agree simply stating that it was a penalty kick. The Riverside has been a not so happy hunting ground for United on occasion, last season we lost 4-1 so despite Southgate's griping reds fans will be very relieved to have won this game.

United can now look forward to the seasons most important game so far in terms of Europe, as United prepare for the visit of Benfica in midweek.
