BORO TIM­ING THEIR RUN

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

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.
