Knight hit by virus

Last updated : 08 September 2006 By Dave Moore
On loan Middlesbrough goalkeeper David Knight has been hit with a virus and it is doubtful whether he will be fit enough to take his place in Saturday's home match against Scunthorpe United. He is suffering from swollen glands and Les Pogliacomi is standing by.

Pogliacomi should have played in the midweek reserve game but had to withdraw as a precaution because it was unclear if Knight would be fit or not. If Poggsy plays he will be cold as he has had no warm up games since coming back from a knee operation.
