Into The Valley

Boro went into The Valley on Saturday and returned with the unbeaten run in tact and another point from the travels away from the Riverside. While at half time we would have been disappointed at the 0-0 result, the final 45 minutes saw the home team get on top. Adomah’s dismissal then meant we were under even more pressure. After last week’s cup exertions we can be happy to have taken a point from The Valley. Boro fans were still buzzing from the incredible night at Anfield when ....

Can Boro Make Elland Hell For Leeds?

Boro go head to head with Leeds United tomorrow at Elland Road.
