Striker blow for Boro
Middlesbrough are set to be without on loan striker Ishmael Miller for several weeks.
The 25-year-old suffered ankle ligament damage during the recent home defeat to Watford and the problem is said to be worse than initially feared.
Miller is currently on a season's loan from Nottingham Forest and has so far netted six times in twenty appearances for the Teessiders.
But the former West Bromwich Albion marksman now appears likely to be restricted to the sidelines until the middle of next month.
