Lukas aids Boro challenge

Lukas aids Boro challenge

Striker Lukas Jutkiewicz could make a shock return for Middlesbrough at Charlton Athletic this weekend.

The 23-year-old was expected to be sidelined for around a month after hurting his knee during training three weeks ago.

But the former Coventry City marksman appears set to resume training today and could earn himself a place on the bench at The Valley. Luke Williams (hip) and Kevin Thomson (calf) may also return while Ishmael Miller, Seb Hines and Marvin Emnes are unlikely to be involved.

"If Lukas gets through the next couple of days without a problem he may make the bench at Charlton and could possibly play at Forest on Tuesday night," manager Tony Mowbray told the Evening Gazette. "We'll try to get him up to speed as quickly as possible."

Meanwhile, Boro's Championship clash at Leicester City has been moved to Friday 18th January for live SkyTV coverage.

Barnsley 2 Middlesbrough 2

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.
