Boss takes blame

Boss takes blame

Middlesbrough head coach Aitor Karanka has blamed himself following a second loss in four days.

The Teessiders latest defeat against play-off hopefuls Reading followed on from their disappointing recent reversal at home to relegation-threatened Millwall.

"It's my fault. I wasn't able to motivate my players," Karanka admitted to BBC Tees. "Against Millwall and the same today we saw two teams who wanted to win and one team that didn't. I am learning every day about the league and the players, everything."

Boro had actually won their previous four games while moving up to eighth but now find themselves thirteenth in the table.

Patrick Bamford scored twice as Middlesbrough came out on top against ten-man Aston Villa in the EFL Cup third round at Villa Park.

The 24-year-old opened the visitors' account from the penalty spot after being brought down by the already cautioned Tommy Elphick with the hour-mark approaching.

Within ten minutes the former Chelsea forward had doubled his tally having already headed against the crossbar during the opening forty-five minutes.
