New Boro signing Andraz Sporar enjoyed a brief introduction off the bench in Ljubljana this evening. 

The on-loan forward was introduced for the final seven minutes of his side Slovenia's 1-1 draw against Slovakia in World Cup qualifying. 

Robert Bozenik had put Slovakia ahead on the night, but Petar Stojanovic levelled things up before half-time. 

As well as a 30th senior international cap and a point towards his country's qualification efforts, the significance for Sporar is that it was his first competitive minutes of the new season. 

He'll have two more chances for match action over the international break - Slovenia play Malta on Saturday and travel to Croatia the following Tuesday.
