Football Scores: Middlesbrough 1-0 Swansea

Chris Wilder won his first home game in charge of Middlesbrough as they produced one of the narrow football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Isiah Jones scored for the home side in the 26th minute. They built on their win against Huddersfield last week to claim back-to-back wins for the first time since October.

Managers Reaction

Middlesbrough’s Chris Wilder: “We showed different qualities today and found a way to keep the ball out of the back of the net. Was that the way we want to play? Was that as we’ve played the last three? No. I think if the opposition had seen us in those last three games, which they most probably had, we were a lot better with the ball. Whether that was Swansea pressing us or us being sloppy in possession, I’d like to think that it was more us because we turned the ball over cheaply and I think we’re better than that. That was the nature of the game, but what we did show was the quality to get the blocks in and clear one off the line.”

Swansea’s Russell Martin: “You can’t create that much away from home and not take a point away, it’s outrageous. We get punished for conceding a really poor goal, which is frustrating. Two mistakes led to the goal but on the whole, the lads have defended brilliantly. In the second half, I thought we were outstanding, I’ll take that performance. But we’ve been punished for a one really poor moment and not being clinical enough in front of goal.”
