Middlesbrough climbed to third in the Npower Championship with an impressive 3-1 home win over Birmingham City.

Boro fell behind when Adam Rooney netted a penalty and went into the halftime interval 1-0 down.  Tony Mowbray shuffled his pack and brought on Belgian playmaker Faris Haroun at the break for what would become a very impressive debut.

Boro equalized within three minutes of the restart when Barry Robson fired in a free kick.  Faroun then caused problems dropping into the hole behind the striker's and unsettled Birmingham at regular intervals.

Faroun was denied by a Curtis Davies block as Boro pushed forward, before he finished off Joe Bennett's deflected pass for a 2-1 Boro lead.

Fellow substitute Malaury Martin was then set up by Faroun, and he finished off the Blue's with a wonderful dipping strike.

The result left Boro fans buzzing with the performance, and excited about what was to come from Faroun.  Here we give you a rundown of five other players who made good impressions in their first game.
