Middlesbrough are looking to get back to winning ways when they take on in-form Sheffield United at the Riverside this evening.

A 1-0 reverse at Reading last time out made it three defeats in four for Neil Warnock’s side, and the manner of the defeat has left fans concerned.
Since then, the experienced boss has vowed to do things his way moving forward, with Martin Payero and Isaiah Jones dropping to the bench as Sol Bamba and Duncan Watmore are given starts.
Meanwhile, Matt Crooks keeps his place in the XI after his red card against the Royals was rescinded yesterday.
12 of these 25 Middlesbrough facts are fake – Can you identify them?
It’s fair to say the fans were not too impressed with the XI, as they had been hoping for a more attacking team as the side look to get back on track, whilst they’re not happy with Bamba’s inclusion either.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the team news from some of the support on Twitter…
