Many Middlesbrough fans have taken to Twitter to react to the decision which saw Matt Crooks receive a red card in their clash with Reading.

Boro suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat against a makeshift Royals outfit at the Select Car Leasing Stadium.

Reading took the lead in the second-half of this particular clash as Alen Halilovic netted his first goal of the season for the hosts.

Middlesbrough responded to this setback by putting Veljko Paunovic’s side under a considerable amount of pressure during the closing stages.
