Chelsea 1-0 Middlesbrough

Mar 31, 2008

A rare Ricardo Carvalho goal was enough for Chelsea as they hung on to beat Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge.

The defender headed home Wayne Bridge’s free-kick inside six minutes.

But the visitors were unlucky not to claim at least a share of the spoils as they were denied by the woodwork on three occasions.

Substitute Afonso Alves hit the post from 35 yards and both he and defender David Wheater headed against the bar in a late goalmouth scramble.
