Middlesbrough striker Lukas Jutkiewicz is set to miss the start of the new npower Championship season after undergoing knee surgery.

The 23-year-old will be sidelined for up to eight weeks following a procedure to clean up cartilage tissue and as a result, will sit out Boro's pre-season campaign.

He added: "He may miss the very start of the season, but we would hope to have him available again soon after that."
