Boro Reserves slump

Last updated : 09 March 2005 By Reggie Holdsworth
A goal in each half from Gabriel Agbonlahor and Stefan Moore gave Villa victory. But for a number of superb saves by David Knight in the Boro goal the scoreline could have been much greater.

Matthew Bates injured his back during the warm-up and missed the game while Andrew Davies, fresh from his loan spell at QPR, missed the game through illness.

Boro team:
Knight, Clough (Grounds), Taylor, Burgess (Lemaire), Wheater, Hines, Peacock, Cattermole (Radcliffe), Craddock, Kennedy, Johnson
