[Archived] News Article -> 2012/13 Half-Time: Middlesbrough 0 Rovers 0

Recommended Posts

Rovers and Middlesbrough are level at the break after an entertaining first half at the Riverside. The match has been open, but Rovers will certainly feel like they should be ahead, having hit the woodwork on two occasions.

Rovers got off to a bright start and nearly went ahead inside of a minute when King's dangerous cross was met by Kazim-Richards, but the ball hit the post and was scooped up by the Boro keeper. It was excellent work from King and his good play was a sign of things to come. Rovers have looked best when getting the ball wide to Rosado and King and their pace has caused Middlesbrough considerable trouble. It was more good play from King that saw Rovers hit the post again, but this time his cross was met by Bikey and the defender was fortunate that he did not divert the ball into his own net. As the half drew to a close Middlesbrough had their best chance of the match, but Jutkiewicz failed to make a good connection with the ball and it allowed Kean to make a fairly easy save.

Berg will probably be the happier of the two managers, but he will no doubt be disappointed that his side have been unable to take one of their chances.
