Adomah coming up against us for the first time since he left, he'll get a great reception. My favourite City player since I've been going, quite literally the only source of entertainment for a couple of seasons and a really great, fun character off the pitch as well, absolutely love the guy. Terrified what he'll do to our defence, mind! Though saying that, him vs Bryan will be an interesting battle.

As for the game, tough one. Anything's a bonus from this really. Interesting to see if young Reid or Burns get a start after impressing off the bench against Leeds. Agard will be in the frame as well after his goal, although still doubts whether he's quite back fit enough for 90 mins just yet.

Think we've got a goal in us but Boro will have too much going forward, 2-1

Adomah vs Bryan will be a fantastic battle, Bryan might have to be a bit less attacking minded because of the threat of Adomahs pace. If we take a less gung-ho mindset into this game then I can see us getting a 1-1 draw, maybe scraping a 1-0, but if we carry on as we are then think we will lose 3-1

I worry we might take a bit of a beating. Boro are going to be up there and we are still coming to terms with the pace of this league.

Flying up to Newcastle tomorrow night, should be a good weekend. Here's hoping the footy doesn't spoil it.

Got 3-1 Boro pegged for this one, have to agree Bryan vs Albert will be a great battle. Think Cotts will go unchanged from yesterdays game apart from if Frankie is back fit yet, if he is, him in for Hamer but otherwise unchanged. Until the penalty we were on top vs Leeds and by the sounds of it until the red we were on top vs Brentford as well. Cut out the stupid mistakes and I think generally we'll be okay but Boro will be too strong for us.

This could be a long and painful day.

3-0 Boro.

Early goal to kill all hope.

Depends how we play.

We will lose if we try and take the game to them. However, this team has shown against the likes of MK Dons and Preston A last season they know how to close a game down to get a draw.

Interesting to see if we can do it against better standard of opposition, but whatever happens I do not expect to see a 4 on 1 against us again!

Can only see one winner here. TBF though, it's the kind of fixture that could springboard Brizzle should they get a result.

Despite that, 3-1 Boro.

This. Hope we go more of a 532 than a 352. Preston sat back and let them have it in front of them, and did a good job

Was a hell of a lot of fun up at Boro, on a cold winters afternoon seeing a 1-3 win.

Not expecting anything remotely similar tomorrow, it could be a very long day.

The way we've defended recently we've got very little chance of keeping them out... I reckon we'll end up trying to outgun them and lose by the odd goal.. 3-2 Boro. :(

Adomah on the bench. I know they've got a wealth of attacking options but that instantly makes me feel more confident we can get something

Middlesbrough with all the ball, creating fuck all.

City should have made more of their clear chances but Konstantopolis keeping the score to just 1.
