Can Boro Shoot Down The Eagles?

Boro travel to Selhurst Park tomorrow hoping to shoot down the Eagles and leap frog above them in the table. We should have been in Fifth Round FA Cup action but instead it is fifth versus six and just 2 points separating Crystal Palace and Boro as we go head to head in the Championship. Boro will be buoyed up by that big win against Leeds United on Tuesday night. Although the suspended Curtis Main will not be available to fire the bullets, can we damage Ian Holloway’s team promotion ....

Boro Must Step Up V Barnsley

Boro have to put a stop to the rot and re-start the promotion campaign v Barnsley at the Riverside, Sat kick off 3pm. Four defeats in a row bottomed out in an appalling display and a real hammering at Ipswich has left us dazed and confused and none too confident about our chances. The only surprise is we are somehow holding onto a play off place. But we need to win against Barnsley to get going again and get some belief back into the shell-shocked supporters. We’ve had a horrendous ....

Can Boro Take Sting Out Of Hornets?

Boro will be boosted by the return to fitness of several key players as they take on Watford tomorrow at the Riverside – kick off 3pm. It is a game we could really do with winning, 4th versus 6th in the league. Zola’s Watford are eyeing up a charge up the table at present. Their form as revived as the manager’s hair.

Boro Can Push On Again At The Posh

After a dodgy stop start stop November Boro can start to push on again at Peterborough tomorrow. Boro need to be dominant against the Championship strugglers and be ruthless in going about our business. The business of winning and picking up 3 points.

Boro Aim To Make History At Forest

Boro could be in seventh heaven tonight if we could win at the City Ground, Nottingham. We have a terrible record against Forest, in fact it is so bad that we have only once in the last 16 visits. So a seventh win in a row tonight would break one of our worst hoodoos and put us right on track at the top end of the table. Former Donny boss Sean O’Driscoll has done a superb job in turning round a failing team at Forest and making them into contenders again. The disastrous experiment with ....

Can We Make It A Happy Valley?

  Boro travel to Charlton this weekend, can we keep this winning run going and make it a very happy Valley? We could be without key figures at both ends of the park with Seb Hines and Ishmael Miller struggling in a race against time to be fit to face the team from south east London. But Lukas Jutkiewicz could be ready for a return as he joins the squad. I wouldn't want to bet against the Juke scoring if he is passed fit. Come on You Reds. There will definitely be no Marvin Emnes or ....

Can Boro Topple Derby?

Boro must bounce back from Saturday’s defeat to Derby with a win over East Midland rivals Derby tonight at the Riverside. Kick off 7.45pm. Derby will come full of confidence following a victory over their near neighbours Nottingham Forest on Sunday but Boro can kick back to form and win. The defeat against Leicester was plain bad luck. The deflection on that winning goal, quite cruel. Maybe we didn’t deserve to win a game that was always tight but we certainly did not deserve to ....
