Middlesbrough No2 Malcolm Crosby has no doubts over young goalkeeper Ross Turnbull.

Boro hope Mark Schwarzer will be fit to return for Saturday's clash at Sunderland after missing the game with Bolton with a back injury, but Crosby insists he would have no worries if Turnbull was to step in again.

"Ross had a good game for us," Crosby said. "He came in and hasn't played a lot for us this season and all credit to him, he had a good game."
