Middlesbrough 2, Derby 1.

Forget about the performance it was about the result.

A great 3 points.

There is now a 6 point gap between ourselves and 3rd bottom Scunthorpe.

It was important that we won tonight, with Crystal Palace beating Cardiff 1-0, with a bizarre goal, and Sheffield United beating Nottingham Forest 2-1.

I have to be honest and say, when I heard our line up with Williams playing alongside Hines, in the heart of the defence after an eight month layoff, and Smallwood making his debut playing in midfield, I wasn’t overly convinced.

When we went a goal down, I thought here we go again.

But to our credit we kept chipping away, Hines grabbed the equalizer in the 73rd minute and Zemmama sealed it in the 88th minute.

Finally we scored a late goal as opposed to letting one in, and we held on to the bitter end.

Well done the team and the fans that turned up at the Riverside on a cold Tuesday night.
