Boro slipped further away from the play-off places after a 2-0 defeat to Bristol City, their second away defeat to struggling opponents in four days.

Mowbray said: "I have to put a positive spin on our position because if we were just off the play-off places having been mid-table all season we would be happy enough.

"Because we have fallen away from the top of the table since the New Year, in a similar way to last season, there is a lot of negativity and I have to turn that around.

"Conceding two late goals at Huddersfield in midweek hit the players hard and it took a couple of days to recover. But we changed formation from that game and started this one in control.

"Sammy Ameobi was ruled out with a hamstring problem and we missed him. We must have made 500 or 600 passes without getting a meaningful strike on goal."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
