Former Newcastle winger Chris Waddle said Middlesbrough well worth their point at Man City

Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email Former England winger Chris Waddle said battling Boro were fully deserving of their hard-earned point at Manchester City. Waddle was at the Etihad Stadium working for BBC Radio 5 Live in his role as matchday summariser. And the former Newcastle and Marseille winger praised Boro for the way they stuck to their task and largely kept a City side who dominated possession at bay until Marten de Roon headed a fabulous late equaliser to snatch a 1-1 draw. Waddle also felt City faded following the exertions of their Champions League win over Barcelona, but he refused to take anything away from Aitor Karanka’s well-drilled Boro side. “ Middlesbrough are well-organised, well-disciplined and must work a lot on their system,” Waddle said. “They don’t give many goals away. I couldn’t see the equaliser coming, I’ve got to say. “It was a wonderful cross by (George) Friend and a fantastic header. “They worked hard and you get your rewards I suppose. “But Man City for all of their possession looked sluggish in the second half. “I think it was a fair result overall even though City dominated the game, possession-wise. “In the second half they seemed to run out of legs, run out of ideas. “Middlesbrough had a gameplan, basically park the bus and try and catch them on the break. “They carved out one glorious chance towards the end of the game and it was a fantastic header by Marten de Roon. “It sent the Middlesbrough fans wild, but City looked very tired in the second half.” Waddle said City defender Gael Clichy could have done better for Boro’s injury time equaliser, but he was impressed by the visitors’ pluck overall. “They have got a lot of spirit, Middlesbrough. They stuck at it, they were disciplined,” Waddle added. “They didn’t create a lot of chances, but they just stuck to a gameplan. “I have got to say Clichy has got to do much better at the far post. The ball comes in and if he is on his side looking around him he gets up and heads that.”  Share
