Lee Tomlin reacts to Middlesbrough win on Twitter

Lee Tomlin says that he is 'buzzing' after Middlesbrough's win over Cardiff last night.

Middlesbrough forward Lee Tomlin says that he was delighted with his side's win and his performance in their 1-0 victory over Cardiff City last night. 

Tomlin came on as a second-half substitute as 'Boro picked up a valuable win against one of their fellow promotion contenders this season.

Middlesbrough have impressed with their style of play so far this season, but haven't picked up as many points as their performances have warranted.

However, after two successive away wins they are now up to eighth in the table and they will be looking to kick on after gaining momentum this week.

Last night's victory over Cardiff was arguably their most impressive so far and Tomlin was evidently very satisfied to be on the winning team. 

He took to social media site Twitter to say: "Buzzing with the result and happy how I played when I came on."

The former Peterborough United man started the season in the line-up, but lost his place due to the arrival of Jelle Vossen. 

That said, if he keeps putting in performances like last night, it won't be long before Aitor Karanka is selecting him once again. 

The Spanish boss prefers to play attractive football, but Tomlin has shown no signs of struggling to adapt to that technically demanding style of play.

In-fact, such is the creative man's ability in possession, it is an ideology he should thrive under and he has started the season well.

Although Tomlin would have liked to have had more goals than he currently has, his performances, in-terms of linking up the play, have been thoroughly impressive.

The 25-year-old can be one of the finest players to watch outside the Premier League, on his day, but he does need to add more consistency to his game if he is to reach the highest level. 

He will be hoping that he has the chance to do that by being back in Middlesbrough's starting line-up in their weekend fixture against Brentford, where they will be looking to make it nine points out of nine.
