Karanka: Boro 'can compete' in top flight

Aitor Karanka says Middlesbrough FC "can compete" despite losing their last 3 successive games.

Boro have gained five points out of a possible 18 and are currently teetering above the relegation zone in 16th place. Their manager says their performance against Tottenham proves they can keep up with Champions League pedigree teams.

The starting point this week has to be the second half against Tottenham (Hotspur) because once against we showed everybody that we can compete against a team that has played in the Champions League, is unbeaten in the Premier League and a team who was fighting for the title last season."

Middlesbrough travel to West Ham on Saturday and who are also hoping for a change of form having only picked up three points since moving to the London Stadium this season.

Craig Wallace caught a faint glow of the Northern Lights last night - and there is a chance they could be visible again tonight:

Tonight will be windy with some spells of rain but a lot of the cloud should clear by around midnight.
