Pulis issues challenge

Pulis issues challenge

Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis has challenged his players to stay in the play-offs following their latest 3-1 victory against Barnsley.

Goals from Daniel Ayala, Adama Traore and the in-form Patrick Bamford did the damage before Kieffer Moore grabbed a consolation for the visitors.

"In the first half we did very well, passed it well, played through the pitch and put lots of crosses in. The one disappointment was that we never scored more goals," Pulis told BBC Sport. "The third goal should have truthfully killed it but we took our foot off the pedal

"The challenge is to stay in there now," he added. "As I've said, we can work all week but once they cross that line they take responsibility and it's up to the players - they have to take responsibility. In the next nine games we'll see."
