Middlesbrough’s disastrous Championship form continued on Tuesday night as they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Bristol City at the Riverside Stadium.
And the club’s supporters have once again called for head coach Tony Pulis to be sacked.
Boro have now lost each of their last five in the league, which is a run of form that has seen them drop into eighth position in the table.
It would be disastrous if they failed to make the play-offs having been comfortable for so long, but that is a serious possibility at this moment in time.
It is not too difficult to understand why the Boro fans are frustrated and it could yet get worse as they prepare to travel to Swansea City this weekend.
After the 1-0 defeat to Bristol City, a number of the club’s supporters took to social media to call for Pulis to be relieved of his duties as soon as possible.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
