Boro Reserves record first victory

Last updated : 30 August 2005 By Reggie Holdsworth
Boro included Maccarone, Colin Cooper and Doriva, while there was a welcome return for Danny Graham, back after four months out with a broken leg.

Boro were 2-0 up inside the first eleven minutes with goals from Danny Graham and Adam Johnson, as the young Blackburn side struggled to live with a much more experienced Boro side.

Maccarone scored for the third Reserve game in succession ten minutes before the break as Boro threatened to run away with it.

Boro continued to dominate in the second half but only managed to add one more goal, even after Blackburn were reduced to ten men twenty minutes into the half. Jason Kennedy scored the fourth with just over ten minutes left.

Boro team:
Jones, Bates, Cooper (Grounds), Hines, Doriva, Liddle, Kennedy, Cattermole, Johnson (Clough), Maccarone, Graham (Craddock).
