Charlie Lee says that although Saturday’s postponement was far from ideal, he and his teammates are experienced enough to deal with the set back and get ready for tomorrow’s Checkatrade Trophy clash with Brighton.

The weekend's scheduled game at Newport County was called off with a couple of hours to go before kick-off and Boro have had to quickly re-focus on Tuesday's game.

“It wasn’t good, obviously. It is one of those things though where if you have been in the game long enough, you would have had it already in your career so you just have to deal with it.

“Once we saw the rain in the morning there were a few rumours around breakfast that the game might be off but obviously we wanted it to go ahead.

“We are professionals though; we got back into training yesterday and are ready to go for Tuesday.”

A defeat to Leyton Orient in the first group stage game of the competition leaves Boro in need of a win tomorrow and Lee says that the camp are looking forward to the opportunity to get back out on the pitch.

“I suppose the positive is that we haven’t lost anyone to injury and we have had a bit of a rest so we will be raring to go tomorrow.

“We want to win every game we play in. It is an opportunity to get better, build confidence and stake a claim within the squad. We look forward to all games no matter the competition so we hope to get a good win tomorrow ahead of Saturday’s league game.”

Boro are at home twice this week as along with tomorrow's Checkatrade Trophy game, we also face league leaders Plymouth Argyle at the Lamex Stadium on Saturday. Tickets are available in-advance or on the turnstiles.
