FT: Middlesbrough 1-2 Blackburn

A furious Aitor Karanka tore into his Middlesbrough players and aimed a swipe at his own supporters after they squandered the opportunity to go top of the Sky Bet Championship table with a 2-1 loss at Blackburn.

After Hope Akpan had given Rovers the lead, Danny Graham, another who spent the formative years of his career at the Riverside, doubled the advantage.

Adam Forshaw pulled one back late on for Boro, but it did not improve Karanka's mood by the time he conducted his post-match press conference.

"It's taken for us 75-85 minutes to wake up," he fumed.

Boro remain third in the Championship table, behind Hull on goal difference.
