'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mowbray praises teenager

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray praised rookie striker Curtis Main after his first goal for the club at Millwall on Tuesday evening.

The nineteen-year-old left the bench to finally secure a welcome 3-1 victory late on at the New Den - one that hoisted the visitors back into the play-offs. The goal arrived in only the former Darlington youngster's fourth appearance for Boro.

"If we get the ball in the box for him he will score," Mowbray told BBC Tees. "The coaching staff have been waiting for an opportunity to drop to him because he has such pure feet.

"It wouldn't have mattered what side it fell onto, his left or his right, as he has that ferocity in either foot, he can smash it as he did tonight," he added. "We're delighted for him, but he's far from the finished product, he's got a lot to work on in terms of his positional play and his game knowledge."
