Monk should use this starting Middlesbrough XI to ensure a win against Bolton on Saturday



The international break is finally over and the Championship is only days away from starting back up again.

This weekend sees Garry Monk’s Middlesbrough side travel to Bolton with the game considered a must win by both sets of fans.

On the one hand, Bolton are yet to win a game this season and are currently sat bottom of the Championship table on just two points.

Middlesbrough have had a better start than their weekend opponents but by their standards, they should be doing better.

Losses to Wolves and Nottingham Forest place Boro in ninth place in the table, already eight points behind the league leaders Cardiff.

With a win needed to kick start Boro’s season again, Monk will need to put his strongest side forward to ensure they pile more misery onto Bolton.

With that being said, here is the starting XI that Garry Monk should go for against Bolton this weekend.
