Marcus Tavernier shares six-word message after scoring in Middlesbrough’s win over Cardiff



Middlesbrough midfielder Marcus Tavernier has taken to Instagram to share a message with the club’s supporters after his side’s latest display in the Championship.

Tavernier helped his side secure a crucial victory in their showdown with Cardiff City last night by scoring the opening goal at the Riverside Stadium.

After being teed up by Folarin Balogun, the midfielder fired an effort past Bluebirds goalkeeper Dillon Phillips from the edge of the box.

Following the break, Middlesbrough managed to double their advantage thanks to Riley McGree’s deflected effort.

Luke Daniels made a good save to prevent Max Watters from giving Cardiff a lifeline in this game as the visitors ultimately failed to produce a comeback.

As a result of this victory, Middlesbrough moved up to seventh in the league standings.

Now only two points behind Sheffield United who occupy the final play-off spot, Boro will be determined to overtake Paul Heckingbottom’s side in the final two fixtures of the season.

Middlesbrough are set to take on Stoke City on Saturday before ending the regular campaign with a clash with Preston North End.

After his side’s victory over Cardiff, Tavernier opted to share a message on Instagram.

The Verdict

Middlesbrough needed their key players to step up to the mark yesterday following a run of five games without a win in the Championship.

Knowing that a defeat would effectively end their chances of reaching the play-offs, Boro managed to deliver a solid display against Cardiff to keep the pressure on the Blades.

Tavernier was particularly impressive in this fixture as he completed 88.2% of his passes and scored a crucial goal for Boro.

Having recorded a WhoScored match rating of 7.42 yesterday, the 23-year-old will now be looking to help his side defeat Stoke this weekend.

Boro will move into the top-six if they seal all three points in this fixture and the Blades suffer defeat at the hands of Queens Park Rangers on Friday.
