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."

Head coach Aitor Karanka insists his Middlesbrough side are still in a good position to gain promotion despite the disappointment of being held at Birmingham City.

Decision costs Boro victory

Middlesbrough moved back to the top of the table but they had to settle for a third successive draw at Birmingham City.

Jordan Rhodes cancelled out Stephen Gleeson's opener before the break, while Gaston Ramirez later seized the initiative for the promotion-chasers as they went in front.

However, David Davis soon equalised before Boro's Daniel Ayala had an effort wrongly disallowed for offside. His colleagues were also twice denied by the woodwork.
