Boro Must Bounce Back V Preston

  It is a massive night tonight for Jonathan Woodgate\'s Boro. We must show our mettle by responding in a positive manner from the first half thrashing to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Boro V The Bluebirds

Boro fans make the long haul south by south west and across the national border to Cardiff. The 290 mile jaunt to the capital of the principality always brings back happy memories of our own big cup success. But that was at the Millennium Stadium, things have rarely been a positive across city at the home of Cardiff City. In fact we lost twice home and away last time we met. That was in their promotion season, when they are out-muscled us with a trademark Neil Warnock physical display. Now ....

Boro Under No Illusions About Lions Roar

  As Boro prepare for Saturday\'s visit from Millwall, head coach Jonathan Woodgate is expecting a difficult task and barrier in the way to getting back to back wins. He watched the game on the box while Leo travelled to see Fulham\'s 4-0 demolition of the south London men but is under no illusions. That result says more about where Fulham are right now as promotion favourites and in now means Millwall are push overs. Jonathan Woodgate today admitted it was not the best performance ....

Boro V Crewe: Up For The Cup

Boro Head The Heed

  A much changing Boro side notched up Jonathan Woodgate\'s first Boro win away against plucky non Leaguers Gateshead last night. A couple of hundred Boro fans made the short jaunt up the A19 to witness Boro being pegged back by a penalty before eventually running out 3-1 winners in the International Stadium. It was a first look over the Woodgate era for many fans but it is a bit early to jump to many conclusions in the game against National League (Sixth Tier) Gateshead. But even ....

Season Takes One More Twist

  That second half equalising goal by Swansea pegged back Derby last night and just about pegged Boro\'s name back in the play off hunt again. With one match left to play Derby still have that single point advantage but anything but an easy game to play. It is all to play for at Rotherham for Boro. Who would have thought watching us full by the wayside away at Swansea or Forest? Derby will have to overcome all those end of seasonal jitters if they are to keep their noses in front on ....

  After three successive wins Boro\'s rejuvenated play off hunt faces its biggest test with today\'s, Easter Monday, head to head at Nottingham Forest.

Play-off Swan Song?

  Boro fans make the long journey to Swansea hoping against hope that Tony Pulis and the team can find the secret formula to break the goals and points deadlock that have seen us drop like a stone down the league and well out of the play off hunt. We are now playing catch up and hoping everyone else slips up. But it is all completely irrelevant if we don\'t make that opposition goal net bulge and often. The beleaguered and under pressure Pulis must shuffle his pack once again and hope ....

Will The Exodus To Wigan Be A Road To Victory?

  As Boro fans prepare for a mass exodus over the Pennines there is a word of warning from manager Tony Pulis, do not take anything for granted. While Boro are on a good run and playing with confidence, he will not be underestimating the opposition. Pulis will have the team prepared but we must remain grounded, there are no givens and no easy games in this league. Boro will be looking to build on impressive victories away at Blackburn and at home to QPR by making it three in a row at ....

The Road To Wigan:boro Dreaming

  There is a real feel good factor around Boro fans this week, knowing Boro it will all be shot down in flames away at Wigan this weekend. But no... don\'t say it.. let\'s keep the momentum up. Let\'s build something and go forward with Boro. Go forward with Boro would most certainly not have been the motto for the season as a whole. Yet the signing of Mikel at the anchor point and the sudden success of Fletcher and Britt as dual strikeforce has opened up real possibilities. ....
