WELL done to the Boro in reaching the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup, although the crowd of 11,800 was disappointing.

What a nice gesture from the football club it would be to reward loyal fans who buy season cards by giving them free entry to the games in the early rounds of the competition.

This will also give the fringe players used in these rounds chance to play in front of bigger crowds.
