‘Don’t ever drop him’ – These Middlesbrough fans are delighted with one player’s display v Huddersfield

Published

Duncan Watmore bagged an impressive first half brace for Middlesbrough in their 2-1 win over Huddersfield Town.

The result comes as a relief for Chris Wilder, who had previously yielded just one point from his first two games as manager. The Terriers had also been in good form at the John Smith’s Stadium and had hoped to close the gap on the play-off places with a positive result but Boro were rejuvenated.

Watmore managed nine goals and an assist last season after Neil Warnock presented him an opportunity while unattached. Contributions have not been as easy to come by this term but the brace and game-winning performance will build his confidence.

Matt Crooks played a delicious no-look pass through for Watmore to loft the ball over Lee Nicholls for his second, a goal that would not have been out of place in the upper echelons of the Premier League.

Boro have a very tricky run of fixtures on the horizon but with the performance today they have no reason to lack belief, in both attack and defence they were dominant and limited the usually free-flowing Terriers to precious little going forward.
