Mowbray relieved at no repeat

Mowbray relieved at no repeat

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray was concerned history might just have been repeating itself at Peterborough United on Saturday.

Boro forged into an early two-goal advantage against their struggling hosts before they fought back well to leave the contest very much back in the balance. Fortunately, substitute Ishmael Miller grabbed a late winner for the visitors shortly after his introduction.

Eight days earlier Mowbray had seen his side twice squander a lead against Birmingham City on the way to going down by the same 3-2 scoreline at St Andrew's.

"I sat there at 2-2 and I thought of last Friday, losing a lead twice, losing the game ultimately, but our changes in the second half helped us," Mowbray admitted to the Northern Echo. "Miller was a thorn in their side, he helped us. He smashed in the winner for us.

"They'd lost 4-1 in their last two home games, and yet the evidence we'd seen is that they're a very good football team," he admitted. "They ask questions of you, they have some talented players and going forward they give teams real problems. Peterborough are a good side and will cause problems for teams, but Saturday was all about the three points."
