Middlesbrough boss ready to persist with Craddock

Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate is ready to gamble with rookie striker Tom Craddock in today's clash with Manchester City.

Southgate said: "Tom's a good finisher, he's scored goals on a regular basis for the reserves and his movement is very good.

"He started as a defender in the Academy, moved up front and has prospered from that.

"He's got a terrific attitude to the game, he's got an edge to him and he wants to do well and it's a bonus for him to get the chance he's having at the moment."
