Espanyol next at The Riverside

Last updated : 06 August 2005 By Holgate
After being generally outplayed by Atletico Madrid on Wednesday Boro will need to step up a notch to overcome another top Spanish side. The club are still hoping to bring in new players before the end of August and it is looking increasingly likely that an attacking midfielder will arrive.

The latest rumour mill talk is of Douala and Rochemback, both Sporting Lisbon, being the new transfer targets.

The game on Sunday kicks-off at 15:00. Tickets are on sale for this game and the home game on Saturday, 13th August, kick-off 17:15.

On a different note Malcolm Christie is having a minor operation on his leg which will set his comeback back for almost a month.
