BORO TIMING THEIR RUN
EVERY January, somebody surges clear at the summit of the table. Last year it was Leicester. This year, it looked like being Derby.
But on this evidence, Boro are the likeliest suspects. Unbeaten in eight, one defeat in 16 – ever so quietly, the men from Teesside have built a formidable momentum.
More importantly, they play with a combination of class, grit and intelligence that equips them to stymie even dangerous opponent like Derby.
The Rams tried everything but Boro always had the answers.
