Mowbray wants positive reaction

Mowbray wants positive reaction

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray has urged striker Marvin Emnes to use the recent adverse reaction of the supporters as a spur over the remaining months of the season.

The Dutchman was booed from the pitch when being replaced during the narrow weekend FA Cup victory against League Two Aldershot Town at

I'll try to give him that confidence by picking him to play, but if the crowd show their displeasure to him, he has to have broad enough shoulders to use that as a motivation."
