Middlesbrough have grabbed the local bragging rights after beating local rivals Sunderland 1-0 at The Riverside Stadium on Sunday lunchtime.

Marcus Tavernier grabbed the game’s only goal early in the match as Boro recorded a third straight victory in the Sky Bet Championship.

The result moves Garry Monk’s side up to fifth in the league table and after the match, fans took to Twitter to give their views on both the result and performance.





Middlesbrough’s next fixture comes on Sunday 19 November when they travel to Elland Road to face Leeds United.
