Neither side can force a breakthrough in the first half of the Championship clash between Middlesbrough and Watford at the Riverside Stadium.

It is goalless at the break of the Championship clash between Middlesbrough and Watford at the Riverside Stadium.

Watford were the first side to threaten as Matej Vydra rose highest in the penalty area from a corner and flicked the ball into the path of Sebastian Bassong, who nodded a close-range effort just wide.

The home side went close as the visitors failed to clear their lines from a corner, and Kike laid the ball into the path of Albert Adomah to strike from the edge of the area, but his effort went just past the post.

Middlesbrough were denied the lead minutes later when Jonathan Bond produced an smart point-blank save from Patrick Bamford's shot from inside the six-yard box.

George Friend became the latest Middlesbrough player to be denied by Bond when he cut in from the left and drilled an effort at goal which the keeper managed to save.
