Pallister desperate for Middlesbrough to avoid relegation

Former Middlesbrough captain Gary Pallister is desperate for his old club to avoid the drop.

"I really hope we do it because it will be such a shame to see us in the Championship after so many years in the top flight," Pallister told mfc.co.uk.

"Goals are the main problem and when you haven't got a prolific goalscorer in your side, it's always going to be a problem.

"Both sides are struggling to score but a 0-0 draw tomorrow night will be no good to anyone. I don't think it will be a classic because of the pressure on both sides.

"But Newcastle have the same problems too, especially with the pressure of their home crowd.

"One win for either side could change everything."
