Middlesbrough can crack top six - Mido

Middlesbrough can crack the top six this season, insists new signing Mido.

Reflecting on a scoring debut in Saturday's win at Fulham, the Egypt international told Boro's website: "When I scored the goal and even when I was substituted I had the feeling that we were going to go on and win the game."

It had been a disappointing start for Boro after two opening defeats but Mido feels the team is beginning to take shape.

"There are a lot of young players here who want to give everything. They are hungry for football and that's the reason I came here.

"We have a lot of good footballers and I think when everybody is fit, there will be a lot of competition for places.

"If we fight for every game like we did against Fulham, I believe we can finish in the top six.

"This result gives us a big boost as we prepare for the game, they're a good side but we have a great chance of getting another three points."
