Mowbray looks for Lukas boost

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray is hoping to have striker Lukas Jutkiewicz back in action for a potentially tense conclusion to the season.

Lukas Jutkiewicz: Currently on the sidelines

The 23-year-old has missed the last four npower Championship games, as well as the FA Cup fifth-round tie against Chelsea, after damaging ankle ligaments in the 4-1 defeat at Crystal Palace on February 16.

He will not be available for Saturday's trip to Bristol City, nor any time soon, but Mowbray is keeping his fingers crossed that he could yet have a role to play as Boro attempt to re-ignite their promotion drive.

He told the Evening Gazette: "He played on with the injury a little bit at Palace. Adrenaline gets you through, but he's got ankle ligament damage.

"He's had a rough season in terms of injuries. I couldn't give an exact time when he will be back, but it will be weeks rather than days."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
