Socceroos striker Scott McDonald kept Middlesbrough firmly in the Championship promotion chase with two goals in his side's 3-0 win over Huddersfield.

Boro had lost their previous two matches but were always too good for mid-table Town at the Riverside.

McDonald gave Tony Mowbray's side the lead on 29 minutes when he netted from close range.

Emmanuel Ledesma added to Boro's lead on 67, before McDonald wrapped up a comfortable three points five minutes from time.

Middlesbrough are back to third, one place off an automatic promotion spot to the Premier League and just three points behind leaders Cardiff City.
