Boro lost 1-0 at Cardiff last Saturday, their first reverse in nine Championship fixtures, and slipped to third place in the table as a result.

However, Mowbray is confident they can bounce back against lowly Bristol City on Saturday.

"Losing games is part and parcel of football, it's about how you react and bounce back and being determined to put it right in the next game," Mowbray told the club's official website.

"The weather hasn't been ideal for training, it's been a bit wet and blustery, but you can sense the team are ready to go again.

"We have to try to pick up where we left off at home. Bristol are a dangerous side, fighting for their lives and scrapping for points. We fully expect a very tough game."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
