Boro Getting Up For The Cup V Burnley

It might be a cliché but it remains true all the same the 3rd round of the FA Cup is one of the most eagerly awaited dates in the football calendar.

Call it heritage and tradition, the dream of every school kid still is of an FA Cup Final victory. The journey towards that dream starts at the Riverside ....

  Can Boro keep on track with a Friday points feast at Ipswich? In this season of bogey ground busting we will need to do it all over again this evening in East Anglia.

Downing Confident We Can Beat Everton

Stewy Downing is really up for the cup and relishing the opportunity of knocking out Everton tonight to put Boro into the League Cup semi finals.

Can Boro Tear Up The Terriers

Can Boro push on with a big victory at Huddersfield this weekend? It was the scene of one of the outstanding victories last season lit up by a glorious 30 yard (at least) free kick strike from Grant Leadbitter. This season we will have to tear apart the Terriers without the suspended skipper. So, get out of jail penalty prizes either from cool hand Grant. But we should have enough firepower and midfield mastery to see the job through. Huddersfield have slipped badly this season, currently ....

Can Boro Kick On V Charlton?

An inspired Boro aim to make the victories at Wolves and Man United count by defeating Charlton at the Riverside on Saturday. Kick off 3pm.

Boro Need To Bounce Back At Wolves

It is never an easy game for Boro at Wolves but after two defeats and a draw we need to pull a result out of the bag this weekend to stop the rot. For all our dominance in possession we lack creativity and penetration of late. Confidence is at a low ebb. A win in the old gold of Molineux would be a fabulous tonic. Last season we crashed and burned 2-0 in a midweek game to forget at Molineux, another ground where we have had bad fortunes lately. Wolves have lost key players since then and have ....

Can Aitorís Boro Finally Shoot Down Leeds?

Boro go head to head with an old enemy on Sunday, Leeds United. The team from across the other side of the ancient county that some of us were born in and some of us were not have a habit of pulling off highly annoying and sometimes incredibly lucky results against us. Aitor has yet to win against Leeds and Leeds. Could that all change on Sunday? A win tomorrow and we will be breathing down the necks of top place Brighton after their 2-2 draw at Bolton. We could certainly make them pay for ....

Boro Look For Away League Win V Owls

    A week on from the shock home defeat against Bristol City, Boro head to Hillsborough in search of the first league win on the road this season. Last time out against Wednesday, Boro made significant changes to the squad and suffered a 2-0 defeat that seemed to suck the life out of the optimism of automatic promotion. Boro lost the game 2-0 with goals from Atdhe Nuhiu and Will Keane. Having done the double over the Boro last season, a trip to Hillsborough provides an opportunity ....

Boro\'s Burton Tester

  Boro face a really stiff test tonight with an away cup tie at Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink\'s Burton Albion.
