‘Fantastic game’ – These Derby fans react to individual’s performance in Middlesbrough win
Derby County picked up a big win in their battle to avoid relegation from the Championship on Saturday afternoon, as they beat Middlesbrough 2-1 at Pride Park. Lee Gregory’s first goal for the club and a stunning effort from Colin Kazim-Richards put the Rams 2-0 up with little more than half an hour on the […]Lee Gregory’s first goal for the club and a stunning effort from Colin Kazim-Richards put the Rams 2-0 up with little more than half an hour on the clock, and although Middlesbrough pulled a goal back through Fulham loanee Neeskens Kebano before half time, the visitors were unable to find an equaliser.
A number of Middlesbrough fans were left frustrated by the performance of forward Britt Assombalonga during Boro’son Saturday.
Neil Warnock’s side headed into the game aiming to get back to winning ways after their two-game winning run was halted by a defeat against Bristol City in midweek. However, that was never going to be easy against an in-form Cardiff side and they took the lead in the first half, before Middlesbrough managed to get themselves back into it and take a point.
One player who struggled in the game was Assombalonga whoahead of the game with Jonny Howson handed the armband instead.
The new Welsh rugby transfer signings and deals now confirmed in 2021
Each of the four Welsh regions have completed transfer and contract business in recent weeksVarious transfers and contract extensions have been announced throughout January and during the Six Nations.
Thatwould remain the same until the end of the campaign. The forward was unable to make much of an impact on the game and was well marshalled by the visitor’s defence.
Assombalonga managed to have just 19 touches of the ball in 81 minutes on the field, and he also lost the ball ten times (). That shows that he was unable to impact the game enough during his time on the field, and his replacement Chuba Akpom provided the assist for the equalising goal to somewhat compound that.
Many Middlesbrough fans were left frustrated with his impact and some were suggesting that Warnock should not start him again with his contract running out at the end of the campaign.

There isn’t an easier day at the office for a centre half than when you’re up against Britt Assombalonga, absolute waste of space
— Nathan Wilson (@naywilson96)
Can someone tell me what assombalonga provides us because I don’t see what he does ngl
— Ryan???????? (@RyanThreadgill2)
assombalonga literally can’t do anything
— Will???????????? (@NeeskensKeblr)
Assombalonga is an absolute liability
— Paul Rooney (@paulrooneymfc)
Assombalonga just simply infuriates me sooner he's gone the better
— Marty Pinnegar (@martypin09)
A decent point overall. Seemed an odd decision to drop Kebano, but I'm guessing it was fitness related. Could have won with an earlier sub.
I'd rather we try build Akpom's confidence up than start Britt (at the moment anyway).
Johnson deserves to start the next game.
