Neil Warnock' s side took the lead in the first half via Uche Ikpeazu's goal, but were pegged back on the hour mark by opposition midfielder Andy King. However, it didn't take Boro long to respond, and Matt Crooks netted the winner ten minutes later.

Speaking after the important wi n , Warnock gave his verdict on the Ikpeazu's performance, and revealed: “I feel a bit sorry for Uche because he’s on his own up there fighting a lost cause at times. I’m hoping we can give him a bit more support.

“Then again Uche in my eyes was going to be second or third choice in that area but at the moment he’s the only one that’s fit and available. I think the crowd have got to get really behind Uche and lift him tomorrow because I think he’s one of those players who can revel off the crowd.

“At the minute we haven’t got an option really so he has got to really pull the stops out, and I’m hoping the fans give him a lift. He deserves that, he’s worked this pre-season harder than he’s ever worked and he’s a good lad. I’m hoping the fans get behind him.”

Middlesbrough will look to take their positive momentum into the midweek action, when they take on QPR at the Riverside Stadium on Wednesday evening.
