Duncan Whatmore scored a brace to ensure that Middlesbrough secured one of the important football results of the weekend in the Championship. It was the first win for new manager Chris Wilder, ending the host’s five-game unbeaten run at home. Watmore scored in the 16th minute and 23rd minute to give the visitors a comfortable lead. The hosts scored a consolation goal in the last minute of stoppage time.
Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “We didn’t perform well. The attacking and defending of the team were really poor. We were better in the second half but of course, it was 0-2 so it was a different situation. We couldn’t break the press and they found the solutions before we arrived. They eliminated players in the high press and were very dangerous. When they scored the first goal it made us go higher up the pitch but we didn’t defend well or win our challenges. The attack didn’t work well and the defense didn’t work well in the first half.”
Middlesbrough’s Chris Wilder: “We got there in the end. We could have won on Tuesday night or Saturday but we didn’t and we had to go again. I like us to play well and we have done today. I didn’t want to come here with fabulous traveling support and play well but not get the win. The scoreline flattered them and we were more comfortable than it looked. “We’ve beaten a decent side who are doing well and it’s a big three points. The pass from (Matt) Crooks to Duncan Watmore was incredible.
