Middlesbrough defeated Brentford in the Championship playoffs semi-finals 5-1 on aggregate.

Middlesbrough have progressed to the final of the Championship playoffs at the expense of Brentford.

Aitor Karanka’s side got the better of the Bees 5-1 on aggregate in the semi-finals of the playoffs.

Boro headed into Friday evening’s second-leg clash at the Riverside Stadium 2-1 up from the first leg played away from home at Griffin Park last week.

It was not going to be easy for Middlesbrough, but in the end it proved to be quite straightforward.

Lee Tomlin put the hosts midway through the first half, and 10 minutes into the second period Kike found the target from just six yards.

Albert Adomah wrapped up a 3-0 win for Middlesbrough in the 78th minute when he scored with a calm finish via the crossbar.

Following the win, Chelsea-owned forward Patrick Bamford, attacker Tomlin and midfielder Adam Clayton took to social networking site Twitter to have their say.
