'Disappointing' 'Deserves a start': Middlesbrough fans react as Neil Warnock makes one change for Wycombe Wanderers clash

Neil Warnock has made one change to his Middlesbrough side for their final game of the season at home to Wycombe – and fans have been quick to react on social media.

Djed Spence has been recalled to the starting XI in place of Neeskens Kebano who is set to return to his parent club Fulham following his loan spell at Boro.

Chuba Akpom has also returned to the Teessiders’ bench after his absence at Kenilworth Road.

With little to play for, some fans have questioned why Warnock hasn’t started more of his younger players.

Here are some of the responses.

@Strickland__Ben: I’m happy Coulson is starting, I feel sorry for our development squads who lost a cup final and potentially lost their playoff places due to their main players being called up to the first team... only to sit on the bench for at least 80 minutes

@RobSc0tt: As expected. A Boro win and wee Duncan to get the goal that takes him to double figures for the season is all I ask

@MikeyHobson3: Surely you’d just give the young lads a go

Middlesbrough fans.
Middlesbrough fans.

@NathanBish95: Disappointing team for a nothing game

@Geoff_Mawson: And I thought the manager said that the young players would get some game time

@HarryPattison3: Sign Bolasie permanently at all costs

@callumjones9109: Thought he said Brynn was starting a game before the end of the season???

@pauljen27555462: I'd have started all the youngsters today, playing for nothing really.

@s14pel: Malley deserves a start

@AlanHewitt10: What are the alternatives?
