Chuba Akpom rested in Middlesbrough’s fall to Luton


Nothing could have altered the position of Middlesbrough, when they faced third-placed Luton Town, at Kenilworth Road as a place in the Championship playoff was already sealed.

With nothing to play for Michael Carrick opted to bench Akpom, the newly crowned EFL player of the season.


Although the decision backfired, it had little or no consequence, they would have leapfrogged Luton to third in the championship standing.


Middlesbrough will first have to navigate a trip to Rotherham, before the 27 year-old will get the chance to present his award to the home supporters on the last day of the regular league season against Coventry.
