Mikel Obi was in his element on Saturday, leading the Boro team from the middle as they picked up another win and yet further their cause for a playoff spot in the Championship.

At the Riverside, Middlesbrough put Reading FC to the sword, albeit coming from behind to win 2-1.

Their tenth home win and the fifth consecutive game when the Nigeria international maestro had captained.

Mikel has lead Tony Pulis’ men to four wins in that period and some fans, as expressed in the 32 year-old’s instagram post early on Sunday, eagerly await his return to the Super Eagles to show such leadership.

Boro’s beacon in the PL promotion tempest posted a message celebrating the win on Saturday, but importantly also expressing hope, of an end to their two-year absence from English top flight.

However, the momentum is with Mikel’s former club and national teams at Derby [Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole and Efe Ambrose] with whom they’re tied on points [70], but have a game in hand.

 

With two games left for them, the Rams are sixth in the table; the final playoff spot, and also have a superior goals difference.
