Season-defining clash for Boro

Middlesbrough must be realistic as Man City arrive with a purpose

Middlesborough manager Steve Agnew feels their fans gave the team a lift in their crucial win over north-east rivals Sunderland.

Wednesday night's slim 1-0 victory over their doomed North East rivals Sunderland gave some sorely needed buoyancy to Steve Agnew's stuttering survival bid in the Middlesbrough hot seat. The lip service paid to the media and fans might speak of battling until relegation becomes a question of cold mathematics, but the situation remains bleak. What's more important is the impetus that can be gained from some hopefully heartening displays before the end of the season.

Boro's fixture list reads like...

Marten de Roon's goal lifts Middlesbrough to first win in 2017

Marten de Roon lifted Middlesbrough to victory as Sunderland's hopes of another escape took a potentially fatal blow.

Middlesbrough achieved their first win of 2017 in a scrappy 1-0 victory over Sunderland at the Riverside Stadium, and have taken all six points from their northeastern rivals this season.

Positives

Marten de Roon led the charge and popped up to poke home a key goal for the home team. There was a positive feeling to Boro's play for the first half, before Sunderland readied themselves, and the Teessiders may feel unlucky not to have gone in at half-time with a much more comfortable scoreline...

Middlesbrough looking for strong finish with fate all but sealed

Caretaker manager Steve Agnew says Middlesbrough have to stay positive about their chances of Premier League survival.
The FC panel look at the bottom four teams in England, and debate if Swansea or Hull will be the final team to drop down.

Had Wednesday evening's game at the Riverside Stadium been played on the original March 11 date, Middlesbrough vs. Sunderland would have had real meaning. But a match backlog and cup commitments meant it was pushed back and the fortunes of both teams have since taken a turn for the worse.

Now, victory for either side is likely to have little impact on their final fate, with both looking set to fall through the trap door and into the Championship. Instead it looks like more of a battle as to who...

Gaston Ramirez and Middlesbrough crumble against Bournemouth

Steve Nicol gives his predictions as to who will be relegated from the Premier League this season.

Middlesbrough have now made it 16 league games without victory as they look almost certain to plummet back down to the Championship after just one season of promotion.

The Teessiders self-destructed with defensive mistakes, a lack of organisation and the early sending off of Gaston Ramirez after he received two yellow cards in a short space of time. Bournemouth could have easily made the deficit much higher than 4-0 but they barely need to get out of first gear to claim this easy victory.

Ehiogu changed fortunes of Boro, Villa; helped mould stars of Spurs, England

Spurs correspondent Dan Kilpatrick reveals how highly the club regarded youth coach Ugo Ehiogu after his death aged 44.

Former England international and Premier League defender Ugo Ehiogu died on Friday after suffering a cardiac arrest at Tottenham's training ground the previous day.

He was a committed and hard-working man whose career was marked by long-ranging spells at Premier League clubs Aston Villa and Middlesbrough. But it was perhaps the formidable partnership that he formed with Gareth Southgate that shone brightest.

The central defensive pair first crossed paths at Villa, where Ehiogu joined in 1991...

Middlesbrough face a must-win relegation game against Bournemouth

Middlesbrough caretaker manager Steve Agnew says Bournemouth will have a capable replacement for 'top class' Jack Wilshere.

Steve Agnew must rally the troops and go all out in an attempt to take the full three points away from Bournemouth this weekend. The Cherries need simply to acquire three more points to be sure of their Premier League status for another season. Middlesbrough's outlook is far bleaker, as they sit six points adrift of Hull City and the breaking pack outside of the drop zone, albeit with a game in hand.

It's a testing 10 days ahead for the Teessiders, whose upcoming midweek game against Sunderland...
