Cardiff City lost 2-0 at home to Middlesbrough in the Championship this afternoon.

Cardiff City welcomed Middlesbrough in the Championship this lunchtime, with Mick McCarthy’s side looking to halt a run of seven-straight defeats in the league.

But they faced an improving Middlesbrough side who’d won three of their last four going into today and it was they who had the lead at half-time.

Andraz Sporar scored from the spot after a controversial penalty call against Cardiff City, who looked markedly improved in the second half.

But Neil Warnock’s side would scored a second through Martin Payero to ensure the win, and ensure an eighth consecutive defeat for his former club.

One man who stood out for Bluebirds fans today was Rubin Colwill – the 19-year-old made his 12th Championship appearances of the campaign today, and was probably the brightest spark for Cardiff City today.
