Boro endured another difficult afternoon at the Riverside as Neil Warnock’s side were beaten 3-1 by Cardiff, but there was also plenty going on elsewhere. Scroll down and flick through our picture gallery to see who shone and who struggled in the second tier:
5. W: Marcus Tavernier
The only Boro player who really came away with any credit against Cardiff after another decent display. "Tav I thought was our best threat today," said Warnock after the match. It follows the winger's impressive performance in the 2-1 win at Reading.

Surely Hull are dead and buried now. After an embarrassing 8-0 loss to Wigan, the Tigers dropped to the bottom of the table after conceding late in a 1-0 defeat by Luton. McCann's side aren't mathematically down but need an incredible set of results to stay up on the final day. The Tigers have won just once since New Year's Day, yep that was against Boro.

7. W: Barnsley
Barnsley's relegation was all but confirmed as anything less than a win against Nottingham Forest would have sent them down. Yet Patrick Schmidt's 93rd-minute winner means the Tykes still have hope with one game to go. It won't be easy, though, as Gerhard Struber's side still have to beat promotion chasing Brentford on the final day to stand a chance of staying up.

8. L: Danny Cowley
Not many people will have seen this one coming. After Friday's 2-1 win over West Brom all but confirmed Huddersfield's Championship safety, Cowley was sacked by the Terriers. Huddersfield say they are "not seeking applications" for the job.
