Boro defender Daniel Ayala in team of week


Defender Daniel Ayala was included in the EFL’s team of the week following his recent performance against Nottingham Fotest.

The Spaniard earned Boro an early seventh-minute lead that was improved upon by Stewart Downing before the break. That raised Ayala’s individual tally to six goals in 34 games this season.

It’s a decent return for a centre-back who joined the club in a permanent deal from Norwich City in January 2014 and actually scored on his debut.

“Like [Derby’s Alex] Pearce, Ayala did the business at either end as Middlesbrough kept hold of their place in the Championship play-offs,” commented the EFL website with regards to his performance.”

Full Team: Ruddy, Pearce, Collins, Ayala, Wilson, Newell, Whitehouse, Murphy, Grigg, Delfouneso, Forte, Harris
