Better news over Boro ace

Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray reckons striker Lukas Jutkiewicz could be back in action by the middle of next month.

That follows a scan showing his knee ligament injury wasn't quite as serious as initially feared. As a result the 23-year-old doesn't currently require an operation and it is hoped he will make a full recovery after an extended rest.

"He's had a scan and he's seen a specialist and it doesn't seem that he needs an operation," Mowbray explained to the Evening Gazette. "He's damaged his lateral knee ligament and he could be out for about four weeks.

"It was a training ground collision, nothing out of the ordinary but unfortunately Lukas suffered some damage," he added. "Hopefully it just needs time to heal."

Middlesbrough twice came from behind to earn themselves a point at Barnsley after goals from Martin Braithwaite and Britt Assombalonga.

A frantic start to the game witnessed three changes of scoreline inside ten minutes, with Ashley Fletcher responsible for an own-goal against his former club and Cameron McGeehan netting on his home debut.

Summer recruit Braithwaite managed to respond in between those and Boro's record signing Assombalonga later equalised on the hour.
