We got what we deserved - Mowbray

We got what we deserved - Mowbray

Manager Tony Mowbray admitted his Middlesbrough side got exactly what they deserved in their latest defeat against Birmingham City.

Boro twice led courtesy of goals from Grant Leadbitter and Scott McDonald but eventually went away with nothing following a disappointing 3-2 reversal at St Andrew's.

It was sufficient to cost them a share of the leadership of the table and marked a third defeat in four games.

"We gifted them goals, and the bottom line is that you can't gift teams goals and expect to win matches," Mowbray told the Northern Echo. "You can't come away from home and gift somebody three goals and expect to get anything.

"We probably got what we deserved in the end. Football is about lots of different aspects, ball retention, competitive edge and keeping the ball out of your net as well as scoring at the other end," he continued. "Most of it was there tonight, but unfortunately the main bit of keeping the ball out of our net wasn't."
