Joy of six for Mowbray

In-form Middlesbrough once again came from behind to win 4-1 at struggling Charlton Athletic and climb into second place in the table.

Charlton took an early lead through striker Rob Hulse but Jonathan Woodgate, Scott McDonald, Emmanuel Ledesma and substitute Richard Smallwood later replied for their visitors.

"We've got stronger in depth, when you consider we've got half a team not playing, and when you think last year we won two of our last 12 and missed out on the play-offs. We can't count our chickens."
