Middlesbrough boss makes positive revelation

Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis has revealed he has had a positive conversation with Martin Braithwaite, with the forward prepared to knuckle down and help the Teessiders in their quest for promotion.   

Braithwaite had been looking for a move in late August, with the forward keen to end his spell on Teesside.

There was interest from Spain, but Boro insisted that a transfer would only be agreed if it was right for all parties involved.

The Danish forward is still a Boro player, with Pulis revealing to the club’s official website that he has had a positive conversation with Braithwaite: “I’m delighted that Martin’s not left and now that he’s back in the squad.

“I’ve had a good chat with him and he’s promised to get his head down and really give it a good go this year.”

Pulis opted to leave Braithwaite on the bench for Boro’s clash with Leeds United before the international break, with the forward not getting minutes at Elland Road.

However, prior to that fixture, Braithwaite had been in great form for the Teessiders.

In five Championship appearances, the 27-year-old has scored three goals, with his form crucial for Boro, who are still unbeaten in the league.

Pulis’ side have 14 points from their opening six fixtures of the season.

Braithwaite will hope to be back in the fold for Boro’s seventh fixture of the season tomorrow against Norwich City.

The Verdict

This is great news for Boro, as an available Braithwaite makes Pulis’ squad much better.

Boro don’t have many other forwards like Braithwaite, as he is a link player between midfield and attack.

They missed him against Leeds, and if his head is right, he should come back in against Norwich.
