Boro boss Neil Warnock came out with some strong comments after the game, claiming that some players don’t want to be at the club.

Here’s what some supporters made of the performance and Warnock’s reaction.

@Chris_Garbutt87: Warnock has gone from ‘they’re a great group of lads giving me everything’ to ‘there’s lads that don’t want to be here and it’s my job to weed them out’ in the space of 5 weeks. Shambles.

@LewisThompson7: There seemed to be a lot of optimism for next season 4-6 weeks ago, but we have lost all of that momentum and for me that is on Warnock. He pretty much wrote the season off early doors and lost us that momentum, suddenly the rebuilding job looks huge and there seems a lot of unrest

@JonnyBullock1: Boro’s performances of late show how far away we are to be a promoted side. We are a million miles away.

@RobSc0tt: No arguing how much better the first half of the season was. Vast improvement on the previous campaign, but what we've watched since the turn of the year, with the odd exception, has been as bad as anything under Pulis or Woodgate. Suddenly feels like Warnock has a lot to prove.

@Cooky34: The Britt substitution was staggering. Warnock can take a lot of credit for much of his time here but his decision making today and the comments he has been making in the press over recent weeks are quite concerning

@Smithy_MFC84: Well, what a waste of 90mins that was. Warnock’s decision making today has been highly questionable.

@Jordanwalker280: Can blame the ref or the players all he wants but Warnock been at fault for a lot of our losses lately

@danasmfc: Same old problems, nothing has changed. it's tiring to hear the same narrative from previous seasons. When are we going to genuinely move forward, without taking several steps back? we're like a trapped nerve!

@Boro_Brick_Road: Strong word from the gaffa!
