2016/17 season comes to an end

Beating already relegated Middlesbrough on the last away game of the 2016/17 season. Can always rely on Shane Long to spoon one over from 12 yards.

We remain on course for a top-half Premier League finish as we held off a late fightback from a meek, already relegated Middlesbrough at The Riverside Stadium.

Jay Rodriguez put us in front at the end of a lifeless first half, losing Calum Chambers to turn in Shane Long's cross after a neat build-up.

Half-time substitute Nathan Redmond curled an exquisite strike into the top corner on 57 minutes after being left completely unmarked by a careless Boro defence.

Boro's Brad Guzan conceded a penalty after felling Long, with sections of the home crowd calling for their keeper to be sent off by referee Anthony Taylor, only for Long to fire his spot-kick over.

Here's to next season!
