Would like more close ups of Warnock when we get free kicks that I’m sure he disagrees with

The shooting is poor. Row Z there.

We look capable of creating something any second though.

Bossing it really

Boro do look dangerous from set pieces as expected though

Much better after the first 20. Looks like it's just a matter of time.

God I love Olise. Just stepping between Meite and Morsi to control and calm the situation.

Well done.

Middlesbrough’s deliveries into the box have been very good, stark comparison to Watford the other week.

Hound Can’t cross but been impressed with Holmes general technique

Basically good feet for a big man


Agree with this
thoroughly justified his selection

Growing into the role for sure.

He's going to be a cracking CB.

This was always going to be a low scoring game.

Boro defending against us pretty well. No big mistakes we can capitalise on, not playing a particularly high line, moping up well, supported by their midfield.

Not threatening much, but the odd good cross /set piece and you know Assombalonga can grab one if given half a chance.

On top. 0-0 would be decent, but it's there to win. Not a lot between the teams.

HT 0-0

Slow awkward start, pretty much as usual then. Gradually grew into the game and looked more comfortable on the ball but just lacking that killer pass at the moment. Middlesbrough look dangerous when they get forward.

Got to be happy with that away from home

As someone said Boro look dependent on free kicks and corners so we need to be alert to that
Otherwise we're playing it around nicely and should continue to do that. The final ball or shot will come

Good half. We will have spells this season where we miss our chances, but we've kept ourselves in the game and that's what matters.

Not sure why Boro are depressed

Holmes certainly and Morrison the pick in the first half.
Getting into it and we'll have one or two decent chances in the second and can see us winning this.
Agreed with more closeups of Colin esp when Boro give free kicks away.....

Holmes best player so far. Felt like we grew into the half. Boro commentators are knobheads.
