Injured Boateng given 10-day rest
Middlesbrough midfielder George Boateng
Boateng's knee injury will be reassessed in 10 days
Middlesbrough skipper George Boateng has been ordered by a specialist to rest his injured knee for 10 days.

He was hurt in a challenge on Arsenal's Freddie Ljungberg - which led to the Boro midfielder being given a second yellow card as he was carried off.

The 31-year-old would have been suspended for Boro's weekend trip to Bolton but he will now also miss the Carling Cup tie against Notts County.

Boateng's injury will be reassessed at the end of his enforced rest period.
