Middlesbrough striker Scott McDonald wants the club to find a cure for their travel sickness if they want to entertain any hopes of promotion. Boro have taken just one point from a possible nine on the road to date this season, and the Australia international is hoping they can address that as they look to build on home wins over Burnley and Reading at Watford this weekend.

McDonald told the Evening Gazette: "It's great to get back-to-back wins against Burnley and Reading, but there is a lot of hard work to be done before the end of the season.

"There's a long, long way to go, so this is only the beginning. We have got three tough games coming up in a week, and two of them are away from home.

"We have to start winning away if we want to be serious contenders for promotion."
