Chris Beardsley will be out of action for up to six weeks after dislocating his left shoulder.

The striker was injured playing in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy against Brentford last Tuesday and x-rays have confirmed the injury.

Beardsley is the second Boro player to have dislocated his shoulder this season.

Midfielder Darren Murphy injured his shoulder against Portsmouth in the Carling Cup and he is about two weeks away from full fitness.
