February 07, 2009 20:34 IST

Craig Bellamy scored his second goal since joining Manchester City to earn his side a 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Wales striker, signed from West Ham United last month, cut in from the right edge of the penalty area after 52 minutes and planted a shot past Middlesbrough keeper Brad Jones.

City moved up one place in the table to ninth.
