Tony Mowbray: Hoping Middlesbrough can finish in the Championship top 10

Tony Mowbray: Hoping Middlesbrough can finish in the Championship top 10

Mustapha Carayol scored the only goal at the Riverside Stadium, earning Mowbray's side three points, but the Boro boss is not convinced his side can overturn a six-point gap.

"I thought we worked extremely hard and if anything we could have scored more late on when they were really over-gambling to score," he said.

"In the world of football if you get beat, you must be rubbish but if you win, you're okay.

"But our performances as a team have not been as bad as the run we've been on.

"Ultimately we'll finish where we probably deserve to and hopefully that's in the top 10 and pushing on to get some confidence out of the last few games.

"It's worth mentioning the supporters who've stuck with the team over the poor run we've been on. Hopefully they enjoyed tonight."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
