Neil Warnock and his Boro players were at work on the training pitches on what was a crisp December morning on Tuesday.
Marcus Browne was back with the group as he steps up his recovery from a hamstring injury.
There was plenty of Christmas cheer in the Boro camp after three successive wins, and preparations are well underway for more festive fixtures coming up.
