Boro hope to blast back into League action with a tea time treat at Brentford,on Saturday. We enjoy a great record down at the home of the Bees but it is never an easy challenge. Can we record a victory in what will be our last ever league game at Griffin Park. 5.30pm kick off Saturday. Come on Boro.

Boro fans hope that the team can take off again from where we left off with that big 2-0 victory against Wigan. Jordan Hugill limped off after scoring both goals he will hope to back fit and ready to prove he can be the man to fire us into the heart of this Championship race. The player who switched the lights on in Middlesbrough (with Deal Fry) can now light up our season.

Boro have been really hard to break down on our travels. Games like the 0-0 at Stoke showed our defensive qualities but also attacking frailties. We had plenty of big chances to put that game to bed. Can the confidence brought by Jordan Hugill's brace now encourage the whole squad to be more deadly in front of goal? That goes for defenders and midfielders as well as forwards. Tony Pulis said at a recent press conference that everyone needs to be contributing and that one thing they have been working on is that the big men do not get in each others way at set-pieces in their eagerness to scvore.

Some Boro fans get the rare opportunity to stand on a big Saturday night out in west London. Next season the Brentford Bees hope to have standing at their new stadium being built close by. But that will take speedy government action, otherwise there will be all sitting for the first time in Brentford's history.

Despite losing their manager, Dean Smith, to Aston Villa, Brentford have continued to challenge at the top end of the Championship under head coach Thomas Frank. Always a well run club, they have become renowned for their friendly fan base and a Boro-like production line of young talent. Boro fans always enjoy the famous four corner pubs in a corner of London that does not seem like London. Let's hope we return with an odd goal more than the Bees and 3 promotion pushing points.

Come On Boro and Up The Boro
