Have your say

Middlesbrough’s Championship promotion push suffered another costly blow with a convincing 3-0 defeat at Birmingham City today.

Winger Chris Burke crossed for Nikola Zigic to head home unmarked for an 11th-minute opener.

Joe Bennett had a goal disallowed for offside for the Teessiders before two goals in three second-half minutes from Marlon King and Keith Fahey sealed Boro’s fate.
