Training boost for Boro

Last updated : 20 September 2005 By Reggie Holdsworth
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Malcolm Christie, Szilard Nemeth, Gaizka Mendieta and Stuart Parnaby all successfully negotiated their first full training session yesterday.

All five players will train this week with a hope that they will be involved in the Tees-Wear derby at the weekend.

Meanwhile, Mark Schwarzer (shoulder) and James Morrison (ankle) are both being assessed for knocks they received from Wigan's Lee McCulloch on Sunday.
