Middlesbrough   2 - 1   Barnsley

Middlesbrough 2-1 Barnsley

Middlesbrough 2-1 Barnsley

Middlesbrough moved to within two points of a play-off place with a fine home victory against Barnsley.

Boro were superb in the first half and after Scott McDonald's shot was saved, they went ahead when Chris Killen prodded in from close range.

Darren Moore headed wide for Barnsley before Gary O'Neil doubled the lead, slotting calmly past Luke Steele.

Barnsley improved after the break and Hugo Colace drilled in from 18 yards, but Boro held on for the victory.


Middlesbrough manager Gordon Strachan:
"We stood our ground when we needed to on the physical and mental side. That's good as Barnsley are a test.

"They sorted us out in the second half but we were actually very confident until the goal went in - and that was their first shot on target I think.

"But we'll learn from that and there were a lot of good things to take from the game."

Barnsley manager Mark Robins:

"We've given them two goals - simple as that. The second half was a little bit of a transformation.

"We created more chances, got the ball into the area more and really could have taken something from the game.

"It's just elementary things that we're not doing right and if we do them right we will end up being more successful than we were here."
