Barnsley   2 - 1   Middlesbrough

Barnsley v Middlesbrough

Barnsley 2-1 Middlesbrough

Hugo Colace's goal for Barnsley condemned Middlesbrough to a sixth loss in 10 games under Gordon Strachan.

The visitors took the lead when Justin Hoyte linked up well with Adam Johnson down the left before his attempted cross luckily flew in from 35 yards.

Barnsley drew level after the break as Emil Hallfredsson's corner fell to Daniel Bogdanovic who flicked the ball over for Stephen Foster to nod in.

On the hour Bogdanovic crossed from the left for Colace to head in the winner.

It is a worrying run of form for Strachan's men who now sit in 11th spot in the Championship table, while Barnsley can boast an unbeaten run of eight games.

Middlesbrough, though, begun brightly and before their lucky opening goal, midfielder Julio Arca had already forced Barnsley goalkeeper Luke Steele into an impressive save.

Barnsley fought back and Iceland international Hallfredsson fired a 30-yard piledriver just wide, while Colace saw a long-range effort blocked defender David Wheater.

After Foster's equaliser, Boro hit back strongly with Gary O'Neil's lob going close from the right but it was the hosts who grabbed all the spoils with Colace's powerful header.


Barnsley boss Mark Robins told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"In the first half we couldn't get near them, it was difficult to contain them, we had to get them - that's why we pushed Bogdanovic up front.

"It was a better second half - we were determined to carry on our run and that's why we didn't let our heads drop. It's a great end to the year.

"That was only our fourth home win of the season, when I came here we only had one point and it shows how well the players have done since I came here."

Middlesbrough boss Gordon Strachan said:
"We were disappointed to lose the game but we couldn't match them.

"We won the football match in the first half and they decided to turn it into a cup tie and then they won it.

"There was nothing wrong with the first goal and the second one was made by a good cross."
