Middlesbrough picked up their first point of the season in the Championship on Saturday, coming from behind to draw 1-1 with AFC Bournemouth at the Riverside Stadium.  

It was a battling point for Boro, who were without Neil Warnock in the dugout, but were armed with 1000 supporters that were allowed back into the Riverside Stadium.

Marcus Browne scored the goal, with the forward stepping off the bench to replace Ashley Fletcher and net Boro’s first of the season in the Championship.

Have Middlesbrough ever loaned out Marvin Johnson?

Despite Browne’s goal, there’s no denying that Boro are short of real quality at the top of the field, which leads us into this latest Boro transfer round-up…

Chuba Akpom

 

Boro swooped to sign Akpom over the weekend, with the striker arriving from PAOK for an undisclosed fee.

He wasn’t signed in time to feature against Bournemouth, but he’s now going to provide cover for Fletcher, Browne and skipper Britt Assombalonga.

Blackwell’s promise

 

On the back of signing Akpom, Kevin Blackwell has confirmed that Boro’s search for a striker isn’t over.

With Boro preferring a two-man axis up-front, they want another in before October’s deadline.

Assistant boss Blackwell told Teesside Live: “We still need another striker. Chuba only gives us three.

“If Fletch is injured, Browne is more of a ten than a striker, so we might need a bit more there.”

Nesta Guinness-Walker

 

According to TEAMtalk, Boro are in the mix to sign Guinness-Walker from AFC Wimbledon.

The 21-year-old left-back did excellently stepping up into the League One last season, featuring regularly for the Dons.

It’s noted how Boro, Huddersfield Town and Queens Park Rangers are all interested in the young full-back, who is also catching the interest of Brentford.

The Bees see him as the perfect option to replace Rico Henry, if he moves on to the Premier League.
