Stephen McManus: Every game from now on is massive

The Teessiders are in danger of slipping out of the top six after taking just four of the last 24 points on offer, and 30-year-old McManus, who returned to the side for the first time since October in Tuesday night's 0-0 draw at Burnley, is confident they have what it will take to turn their form around.

He told the club's official website: "Every game between now and the end of the season is a massive game.

"But look at the quality we have got all over the pitch - we have nothing to fear.

"I have always had a tremendous rapport with the fans, the staff and players here. I have loved my time here and hopefully I can play my part between now and the end of the season. If I can help in that in any way, that is what I want to do.

"You don't feel like a footballer when you are not playing. You want to be playing week in, week out to be an important squad member, and I'm certainly no different."
