From Norwich slip up to Blackburn and Swansea controversy: 11 games that defined Middlesbrough's 2020/21 season

After a promising start, the Teessiders looked like genuine contenders for the play-offs, after significantly improving on last season’s performances when they were nearly relegated from the second tier.

There were some memorable wins and fine showings, yet there were also some hugely disappointing results as well.

The way the second half of the season petered out was frustrating for Warnock and Boro supporters, leaving a sense of what could have been.

After sitting just a point off the top six at the start of 2021, the Teessiders finished 17 points off a play-off place in May, highlighting the work that needs to be done ahead of next term.

We’ve picked out 11 games that defined Boro’s season, including the highs and lows throughout the campaign.
