Boro slump continues as Warnock issues rallying cry
Middlesbrough sunk into the relegation places following their latest defeat at home to QPR.
Boro went into the game knowing that a win would lift them clear of the relegation spots.
However, Boro fans were left with a display that was disjointed with a toothless attack. This echoed the familiar problems that have plagued the club all season.
The appointment of Neil Warnock was meant to galvanise the team and bring solidify, but the players appear to have lost their self-belief.
After Jordan Hugill netted the opener for QPR it was difficult to see the club coming back from the goal to win.
Although Boro tried to rally in the second half, the problems against Hull City resurfaced. The players movement was not organised and the attacking players lacked creativity.
Warnock after the match issued a rallying cry to his players. "We have to take our chances, I think we had twice as many shots but we just need something to drop for us."

It remains to be seen whether the players will be able to recover ahead of Wednesday's game against Millwall.
