    Middlesbrough's double life won't harm Premier League survival effort, says Aitor Karanka

    Middlesbrough continue to lead a double life, the cup again providing welcome respite from their increasingly grim struggle for Premier League survival. Not that serial pragmatist Aitor Karanka is a man who could be ever described as throwing off the shackles, but three goals for his side on an afternoon of rare drama was as many as the division's lowest scorers have managed in the last 12 hours' top flight football, stretching over two winless months. Where home victories against Sheffield Wednesday and Accrington in the previous two rounds had been routine, this was anything but.
