No pressure on us - Pulis

Manager Tony Pulis says there is no pressure on Middlesbrough following their 2-1 victory against Reading at the Riverside.

Adama Traore struck a goal in each half as the hosts closed to within four points of the play-off places at the expense of struggling opponents.

"We have played well in most games this year apart from taking chances in the final third," Pulis admitted to BBC Tees. "We missed a penalty, Patrick Bamford missed from six yards and Grant [Leadbitter] hit the inside of the post. We could easily have had four or five goals.

"Two-nil is always a tough scoreline as if the team you are playing against get one goal it gives them a lift psychologically," he added. "There is a quarter of a season to go and no-one is talking about us. There's no pressure on us."
