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

Mowbray praises 'hard-working' striker

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray was again praising the efforts of recently recalled striker Scott McDonald following his latest display.

The 29-year-old made it four goals in five games since returning to favour with the winner at local rivals Sunderland in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.

That added to both goals at the weekend against Bolton Wanderers in addition to another in his first appearance of the season at Watford earlier this month. Boro have actually won every game this season in which the Australian has played.

"Scott is coming into work with a smile on his face and enjoying playing," Mowbray told BBC Tees. "He's his own worst enemy, he's desperate to do well and that manifests itself wrongly sometimes.

"At this moment he's smiling, he's happy and he's working extraordinarily hard," he continued. "I didn't play him down the middle today. I asked him to play wide, and he did it happily like a trojan working up and down that line, and getting in the box to get the goal."
