PHIL DENT – MIDDLESBROUGH

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

Dare we dream of the play-offs? I know I cer­tainly am.

Ja­cob But­ter­field’s cool fin­ish earned Boro a vi­tal 1-0 win at sec­ond-placed Burn­ley and threw us right back into the mix to qual­ify for the top six.

We now sit just six points be­hind Brighton, who oc­cupy the last play-off spot, and have winnable fix­tures left against Barns­ley and Yeovil.

The game it­self wasn’t the most mem­o­rable, though. Boro bat­tled bravely but Bur nley were on top.
