Dimi Konstantopoulos: Wants to mount a promotion challenge

The 35-year-old keeper made his Boro debut in Saturday's 2-0 FA Cup third-round defeat by Hull with loan signing Shay Given ineligible as a run of five games in 15 days drew to a close.

However, the Teessiders had taken 10 points from a possible 12 in the four Sky Bet Championship fixtures which preceded it to leave themselves within striking distance of the top six.

Konstantopoulos told the club's official website: "Saturday's game was at the end of two weeks of five hard games.

"The FA Cup is a great competition, everyone wants to play in it. I'm sure those from other clubs who said they don't like it have their reasons.

"Now it's the league for us. We are six points off the play-offs, and that shows how far we have come since the gaffer came in. We are picking up points, playing well and getting results."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
