A thoroughly entertaining match at St Andrews resulting in Middlesbrough earning a point to move back to the top of the Championship for a few days at least. The mid-table Blues played their part in the 2-2 draw, which wasn’t short of talking points and discussion.

With the game at 2-2, Daniel Ayala had a goal very harshly disallowed for offside. That would have given Boro a 3-2 lead, just minutes after conceding.

Whilst the result will go down well in both Burnley and Brighton, we are going to take to Twitter to see how the result is going down in Teesside. Although Middlesbrough have essentially dropped points, a final day of the season win over promotion rivals Brighton would still earn them promotion.

Middlesbrough fans:

Whilst it was frustration for Middlesbrough, there are plenty of happy Burnley and Brighton supporters out there:

Also, tonight’s game brings down the home campaign for Birmingham City. Considering they had ‘nothing to play for’ their fans generally seem very happy with their Friday night showing:

One thing that is for sure is that games like this prove why we love the Championship and Football League in general. Having said that, the likes of Middlesbrough certainly don’t want to be playing at that level next season! The promotion race continues and we can expect plenty more twists and turns in the promotion race too. We haven’t even started the play-offs yet either!!
