Middlesbrough picked up an important three points at the weekend, as they ran out comfortable 3-0 winners over Stoke City at the Riverside.
Boro took an early lead after 21 minutes, as defender Grant Hall opened the scoring for Neil Warnock’s side. That lead was then doubled just 19 minutes later as Paddy McNair curled home their second goal of the match after being played in by Everton loanee Yannick Bolasie.
Nathaniel Mendez-Laing netted his first goal for Boro with just two minutes of normal time remaining in the contest, as his chipped finish over Angus Gunn saw Middlesbrough ease to a well-deserved three points.
Do these celebrities support Middlesbrough or not?
Boro winger Yannick Bolasie was making his fifth appearance of the season for Boro, and was evidently pleased to see his side pick up the win over Stoke, as he labelled it as a ‘great performance’ from his team in a recent social post.
