Match Report here:
Bugger. Boro have just won so are sitting above us in table. If we lose today, the sweat patches will grow under "I've never failed" Doctor Evil's armpits. I called today a "season defining game" and that's even more true now!
The team selection is odd. Still no Faye so Potts gets another start. But Allardyce has left Lansbury on the bench and has opted for Piquionne and Faubert instead, with O'Brien returning at right back.
I fear we will be over run in midfield. Piquionne won't put in a shift at the best of times, I can't see him running his socks off on Boxing Day!
O'Brien, Tomkins, McCartney, Potts
Subs: Boffin, O'Neil, Sears, Lansbury, Carew
God help us if Tomkins or McCartney pull up injured!
