We were good in fits and starts. But the bigger problem is: Vaughan. Without a fully fit functioning Vaughan, we are about 35% of the force. Deano we need desperately a replacement in the loan window, please, or we are doomed! SPH, Almondbury

Town appeared somewhat outclassed by a very good Middlesbrough side. Even though they huffed and puffed tirelessly, it was not enough and the manager knows there is a lot of work ahead to do... but I am sure he will relish the challenge and slowly but surely we will see a big improvement given sufficient time. Rob, Fartown

Soft penalty to give in a competitive game. If he referees Forest vs Derby and applies that standard Forest have at least 5! William, Huddersfield

Town failed to control the game. The centre-back pairing of Hudson and Lynch worked well. Not many positives to take away, bounce back on Tuesday night. Ethan, Brighouse

Smithies cannot command his six-yard box. Peltier is not a midfielder. Hudson was excellent but it's a long, hard season ahead.. Knowing Vaughan's fitness levels, why a no.9 was not bought beggars belief. Ian, Northallerton

The best team won. Very disappointing. We need a home win quickly, roll on Tuesday.. Come onTown.. HTFCMin, Leeds

Game changer was Vaughan's bad touch, which saw him go off, lucky not to see red. Maybe should have brought Scannell on and moved Bunn into middle and kept the ball low against a big back four. Don't know why Smithies only had a two-man wall for the goal. Butterfield jumped and maybe he knew where it was going being ex Boro. We were opened up with ease in the second half. They lacked a finisher but we couldn't hold the ball until the widemen came on, Mark Lillis style! Would have been a point robbed, but for Smith, who was dreadful all afternoon. Steve, Huddersfield

Frustrating afternoon with the class of Butterfield being stymied by the space occupied by Peltier. Replacing Peltier with Ward freed him up and made the difference - too little too late!! David, Thackley

Chris Powell will have to quickly resign himself to the fact that James Vaughan is unlikely to influence any games and act accordingly, but in my opinion any decent available attackers will be extremely hard to find at this stage of the loan period. I did not think the team played with the desire and conviction showed under Mark Lillis and the solid performance of Mark Hudson stopped another Bournemouth-type result. After getting the best out of Sean Scannell for the previous matches, how will he react to being dropped? James, Sheffield

Better performance but still too many weak links - the two full-backs were poor. Bunn looked out of his depth and Vaughan, well, will he ever get fit and complete at least 45 minutes? Let alone a full game... John, Holmfirth

A struggle for much of the game. Butterfield needs to play in the centre, not wide, and we need to carry more threat going forward. One of our four widemen needs to start. John, Honley

No improvement on previous displays but new manager needs more time and more new players. Arthur, Beaumont Park

Looked really disorganised. We had no pace or width and the long ball up front is all to no effect and just proceeded to give possession back to Boro. We needed someone with pace, wide like Adomah for Boro, who caused havoc throughout. Going to take a lot of sorting out I'm afraid. Paul, Skelmanthorpe

New manager but same old problems. Some players our of position and looked lost. Midfield didn't function and therefore no real second-half pressure. Will we ever leave a man upfield when defending a corner? All in all, a poor performance. Roy, Berry Brow

For me, Coady and Peltier are not creators of chances and we looked slow and dead in the middle. Only when Ward came on and Butterfield moved inside did we get going. Please get a striker who can play rather than watch. That's what we pay to do! TJ, Horbury
