Boro could move into market

A continuing lengthy injury-list at Middlesbrough could force manager Tony Mowbray into the loan transfer market.

Boro may have as many as a dozen first-teamers ruled out of action for this evening's visit to Burnley.

Mowbray had previously insisted there were no immediate plans to add to the squad but might now be forced into a hasty rethink.
