Alves ruled out of Boro's battle for survival

Middlesbrough's record signing Afonso Alves will not play again this season.

Tests carried out revealed the Brazilian, a £12.7m capture from Heerenveen, fractured a metatarsal during the 3-1 derby defeat at Newcastle and will miss Saturday's home clash with Aston Villa and the final day trip to West Ham.

Alves was hurt in a first-half challenge by Nicky Butt, which cost the midfielder a booking, and was carried off on a stretcher with the score at 1-1.

In addition, captain Emanuel Pogatetz has undergone knee surgery and will also be unavailable for the last two games with the Teessiders' 11-year stay in the top flight under severe threat.

David Wheater and Didier Digard are still being assessed after missing the game with knee and groin injuries respectively.
