Boro\'s Burton Tester

  Boro face a really stiff test tonight with an away cup tie at Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink\'s Burton Albion. Having fallen to a home defeat on Saturday to Bristol City the last thing we want is to slip up on a banana skin in the cup. Boro old boy Jimmy Floyd will have plenty of motivation to underline his credentials as an up and coming young manager. After winning promotion from League Two last season no one will treat the visit to the Pirelli Stadium stadium lightly. 7.45pm kick off. ....

Boro Aim To Avoid Cup Shocker

In a week of cup shocks Boro will be aiming to buck the trend tonight by beating Oldham at Boundary Park. Seven championship teams were toppled yesterday in the first Round of the Capital One Cup.
