Middlesbrough Player Ratings
Darren Randolph (6/10)
Randolph didn’t have much to do in the first half and endured a quiet game apart from the Hull City goal. Made a decent save of Grosicki’s free-kick as well.
Daniel Ayala (5/10)
Didn’t look comfortable all night and gave away a needless foul which led to a penalty.
Aden Flint (7/10)
Flint was defensive superb and came close to finding the back of the net in the second half.
George Friend (6/10)
Seemed flustered on one or two occasions, but grew into the game. Was a whisker away from scoring as he produced a fierce drive early in the second half.
Ryan Shotton (6/10)
His deliveries were very poor in this game but he did look good running up and down the field.
Adam Clayton (6/10)
Provided defensive stability in the middle of the park. However, he was booked after a couple of clumsy challenges.
George Saville (5/10)
Saville didn’t really stand out and endured a mediocre game. He was unable to offer much going forward.
Jonny Howson (7/10)
Provided the assist for Boro’s goal and almost nicked a winner in the end. Howson looked lively all game.
Sam McQueen (6/10)
McQueen was disappointing with his deliveries into the box. He didn’t offer much going forward.
Britt Assombalonga (7/10)
Didn’t look good in the first half but scored early on in the second. Apart from the goal, he didn’t really threaten.
Jordan Hugill (6/10)
Worked hard all game but was unable to produce much going forward.
Stewart Downing (6/10)
His energy caused problems in the final third but Downing’s deliveries were poor.
Muhamed Besic (6/10)
Came on and did his bit defensively. He ensured Boro saw out the game.
