MIDDLESBROUGH manager Neil Warnock vows to keep fighting on after his side's defeat culminated in fans chanting for the Boro boss to be let go. 

Boro lost 2-0 against a struggling Hull City side in a cruel defeat at the MKM Stadium where the Tigers netted twice in the last ten minutes. 

After Mallik Wilks scored the second in stoppage time, sections of the strong 3,500 crowd of Boro fans could be heard signing 'you're getting sacked in the morning' as they slumped to defeat. 

Warnock admitted post match that he was desperate to see the strong following widely celebrating a goal in Humberside but it wasn't to be as his side spurned a number of good chances in the second half. 

With two weeks for the players and staff to do some soul searching over the international break, Warnockis adamant he's doing all he can with his injury hit squad. 

Warnock said: “I mentioned that at half time. I said I was getting wet through like the fans so we’ve got to step up a gear which I thought we did second half but couldn’t get a goal at that end.

"It’s disappointing really because it would have been fantastic to go home with the points with a following like that.

“If anybody can do better then good luck to them. I don’t mind Sol (Bamba) going up at 1-0. You might as well lose 2-0 at that stage but that just summed it up.

“Isaiah (Jones) made a mistake but then again. He’s only a young lad, you can’t blame Isaiah. He’s doing his best. We’ll have to regroup and see what we can do to come up with a solution for the next game really.

“I’m ready for the fight but it’s going to be really difficult with what’s happened in the last 24 hours.

“I’m sure when tonight’s over, we can clear the mist and have a look at what we’ve got. If we can bring anybody in, great. If we can’t then we’ll have to get on with what we’ve got."

Warnock's record in the calendar year makes for poor reading and their fifth league defeat of the season leaves the club 15th in the Championship table going into the international break. 

Meanwhile, Boro will assess the extent of the injury to Dael Fry after he limped off in the closing stages of the defeat at the MKM Stadium.
