Here's what the papers made of Boro's late win over Coventry City on Tuesday...
Middlesbrough left it late but the substitutes once again proved decisive to earn a massive three points against Coventry City at St Andrew's.
In a scrappy game overall, Boro showed massive improvements on a poor first half and Warnock's four second half changes all made an impact as George Saville won them the game with just three minutes left to play.
It meant they stayed just three points behind sixth-placed Cardiff who also won, showing their fight once against to come from behind and win 2-1.
Substitute George Saville made an instant impression as he struck an 87th-minute winner to earn Middlesbrough a 2-1 victory at lowly Coventry.
Substitute Saville poked home from close range two minutes after being brought on to move Boro within three points of the play-off places.
Grant Hall had earlier opened his Middlesbrough account with a fine header from a Paddy McNair free-kick to cancel out an early own goal from Anfernee Dijksteel that had given Coventry the lead.
The Middlesbrough boss said a couple of weeks ago he didn’t want this season to peter out after challenging for a play-off place for most of the campaign.
Yet, in truth, anything other than three points against a relegation-threatened Coventry side would have marked a big opportunity missed, as the Teessiders cling onto the coattails of the Championship top six.
In the end, Boro got the job done, coming from behind to claim a 2-1 win.
Boro retained possession much better in the second half, and on 74 minutes, Warnock introduced Yannick Bolasie, Duncan Watmore and Marvin Johnson, while Saville later replaced Marcus Tavernier.
The changes paid off as Johnson’s neat reverse pass found Howson, who cut the ball back for Saville to convert.
Middlesbrough came from behind to beat Coventry City and reignite their Championship play-off push.
Both sides had looked set to continue their indifferent form with a draw until George Saville won it for the visitors late on.
The second half was low on quality, but Jonny Howson made a surging run to the byline and played the ball across the face of goal for Saville to tap into an empty net.
Having taken just a single point from home games against Bristol City and Cardiff City, Neil Warnock's side registered back-to-back away wins to keep them within three points of the top six.
