Reserves slip-up

The game was important for a couple of Boro players returning from injury, in particular Robert Huth who managed an hour for the first time in a Boro shirt.

Saturday's trip to Bolton may come too soon for the German but he will certainly be in contention for next weeks Carling Cup game against Notts County.

Ray Parlour also had a useful run-out and will hope to push for a place in the Bolton squad.

Boro lost the game to a solitary goal by Derek Geary after 17 minutes, but they had their chances and will be disappointed not to get something out of the game.
