Middlesbrough v Norwich LIVE!


  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: There are just four minutes left for Middlesbrough to rescue something here. The ball in deep in the Middlesbrough half, not where they want it to be.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Redmond makes way for O'Neil as we enter the closing stages.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Adomah fouls Bassong as Boro hand Norwich the chance to clear their lines after serveral minutes of sustained pressure.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Chance! It's almost third time lucky for Ayala as he rises highest to meet the resulting corner, but his header is blocked by Grabban.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Game getting really stretched now as Middlesbrough go on search of a lifeline. Redmond tries to break but he is an isolated figure as Boro snatch possession back. Bamford is then found in space in the box and his cross wins a corner.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Close! Nathan Redmond sends a whipped set piece curling over the Boro wall which just misses the goal by a yard.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Norwich are handling the game really well as we enter the final 15 minutes. Substitute Dorrans is fouled 25 yards from goals and the Canaries are awarded a free-kick.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Lewis Grabban and Graham Dorrans come on for Cameron Jerome and Wes Hoolahan. Earlier on, Aitor Karanka brought on Kike in place of Vossen.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Close! Kike's pull-back is deflected towards Bamford but Ruddy is on hand to smother the chance and Boro see a half-chance evade them.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Canaries captain Russell Martin spurns a glorious chance, heading over from six yards out. Boro then punt the ball up field and Ruddy is almost caught to the ball by Bamford but the ball runs out of play.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: The Middlesbrough defence simply cannot deal with the pace and power of Cameron Jerome as he wins a corner for Norwich.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Adomah's persistent play down the right proves to be fruitless as his cross from the right is gathered by Ruddy.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Leadbitter does really well to dispossess Hoolahan deep inside Norwich territory but, when the ball is sent back in, Ayala long ball misses target man Bamford and goes out of play.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Howson is booked for a late challenge on Tomlin.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Dimi punches the Norwich corner away from goal before Bassong dithers in possession at the edge of the area before he plays the ball into touch.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Gibson panics when put under pressure by Jerome, deflecting the ball out for a corner.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Save! Bamford draws a fine save from Ruddy. Tomlin's disguised pass to Bamford sees the England U21 striker turn and shoot straight instantly and Ruddy dives to his left to keep the effort out. Promising from Boro but they have only got 30 minutes left

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Adomah is causes Norwich all sorts of problems down the right and puts another dangerous cross into the area. The ball drops to Vossen who theatrically goes down under Hoolahan's challenge and is booked for simulation.

  • MIDDLESBROUGH 0-2 NORWICH: Great play by Boro as Adomah wriggles free down the right and floats the ball into the area which sees them win a corner. Again Ayala connect with the set piece, but his effort is deflected off Bassong and wrongfully out for a goal kick.
