This live event has finished
And that concludes the press conference here at the Macron stadium
DF: "It all boils down to three things; Poor poor decision from the referee, poor lack of concentraion for the last 10 minutes and not taking our chances when they come"
DF: "If you concentrate for 95 minutes of football when defending you don't win games of football."
DF: "Shocking decision. If somebody is about to shoot and somebody pulls him down."
DF: "The decision, gamechanger"
Dougie Freedman's turn now in the hotseat
Not very fluent English from the Boro boss so sorry for the lack of update
That concludes Karanka's press conference
AK: "When we play with the spirit that we had today, when we fight like we did today I always say the same things to the players after the game"
AK: "The lads know when we work and create one chance Kike will be there to score"
AK: "For me the most important thing was the team performance"

Hopefully a win tonight but feel Middlesbrough will want to rectify their loss on Saturday, can see a draw
I was out of play yesterday - Dave Pye went to the press conference. But I'm not aware of anything impending. Will ask again tonight.

J J J J says
any news on transfer dealings, ins or outs? Thanks
Not asking for names just asking is there any deals close?
BBC Radio Manchester's Jack Dearden reckons Bolton will win tonight. He's going for 2-1.
We'll have some score predictions in a moment. I'm going for 1-1 and Neil Danns to score the Wanderers goal.
So only two players in the current Wanderers squad have scored more than 10 goals for the club.
Leading scorers (Wanderers career)
Chung-Yong Lee 17
Mark Davies 14
Jermaine Beckford 9
Darren Pratley 6
Joe Mason 6
Just spotted some interesting stats in the programme too.
In fact, Dannsy addresses his rather unique 'do' in an interview piece in the programme.
"I was actually getting my hair done that day so I am going to see if I can get my profile picture changed!
"The lads have given me some stick for that, I can tell you.
"I'm not a shy person though, so when it comes to making fun out of myself I can do that. I like to have a laugh and a giggle."
In fairness to Dannsy, no-one told him it was media/photo day. Any pictures you see in the programme of Jay Spearing will also have the skipper sporting a massive beard.
Neil Danns adorns the front of the programme tonight... with his big hair.
Team news will be coming up at around 7pm.
Good evening folks - welcome to Matchday Live!
