No panic from Mowbray

No panic from Mowbray

Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray won't be making any rushed buys in January despite a couple more injuries during the New Year's Day defeat to Derby County.

Boro lost central defender Jonathan Woodgate before half-time and ten-goal striker Scott McDonald for the entire second-half of the 3-1 defeat at Pride Park.

Meanwhile, George Friend, Marvin Emnes, Justin Hoyte and Josh McEachran were amongst those already ruled out for the visitors alongside the longer-term Julio Arca, Curtis Main and Muzzy Carayol.

"I don't feel anymore pressure to get someone in," Mowbray told the Northern Echo. "Everybody is two to three weeks maximum. It's tiredness that has caused tiny little ruptures, but there's no panic and thankfully now there's a little break from the league programme. We can give a few players a rest this weekend and hopefully when we return to league action we'll be in better shape."

Middlesbrough twice came from behind to earn themselves a point at Barnsley after goals from Martin Braithwaite and Britt Assombalonga.

A frantic start to the game witnessed three changes of scoreline inside ten minutes, with Ashley Fletcher responsible for an own-goal against his former club and Cameron McGeehan netting on his home debut.

Summer recruit Braithwaite managed to respond in between those and Boro's record signing Assombalonga later equalised on the hour.
