Southgate: Unhappy with Boro fans Send to friend

Marlon King's injury-time equaliser secured a possible lifeline for Boro as the Boro fans had booed several players and started chanting "We've only got one player" - in reference to Turkish striker Tuncay.

Southgate: "It's one of those situations where I am going to get slaughtered whatever I say, so I'm going to say what I believe.

"Some of the chants were disrespectful to the rest of the team.

"The crowd are right to laud Tuncay's efforts but we will win and lose as a team. The other lads may not have been as eye-catching but they were making important saves, blocks and interceptions.

"It's hurtful for a lot of the other players. We will survive as a club and as a town by everyone pulling together."
