Tony Mowbray: Knows he needs to lift his Boro players

Tony Mowbray: Knows he needs to lift his Boro players

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."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
