Middlesbrough fans left wanting more from Traore after Aston Villa display

Middlesbrough have it all to do in their English Championship play-off semi-final after a defeat at home to Aston Villa on Saturday.

Losing the match 1-0, Tony Pulis’ side now need a mammoth performance to turn things around at Villa Park on Tuesday night, with a place at Wembley and promotion to the Premier League at stake.

Fans were left disappointed with not just the result but also the general display from their side, singling out the likes of Adama Traore for a particularly poor performance.

Traore has scored five goals and created 10 assists this season but was unable to cope with the defensive efforts of Alan Hutton on Saturday, failing to have much of an effect on the game in the final third.

Supporters are now desperate for him to improve for the mid-week second leg, believing he does have the ability on his day to produce something special for Boro.
