Boss delighted to progress

Middlesbrough head coach Aitor Karanka was delighted to make progress in the Capital One Cup.

Striker Lee Tomlin scored twice and Bradley Fewster was also on target in a 3-1 victory against Preston North End.

"The main thing is getting through," Karanka told Boro's official website. "I wasn't happy at half-time, but I'm happy with the second half and happy that we got through.
