Anxious times for Boro

Anxious times for Boro

Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray has admitted that anxiety is certainly increasing on the back of their dismal run in the Championship.

Boro have suffered five straight defeats and are still pointless since the turn of the year, despite them remaining in the play-offs and within catching distance of an automatic promotion place.

The most recent of those losses was at the weekend when lowly Barnsley came from behind for a 3-2 victory at the Riverside.

"There was an anxiety there that was compounded by the concession of an early goal," Mowbray told the Northern Echo. "The place took off when we got 2-1 in front and everybody was bouncing, but the pin was put in the inflated balloon again by the goal we conceded. Then the anxiety returned.

"That's football and you have to deal with that, there's no magic way out of it," he reasoned. "There's no magic formula, you just have to work hard."

However, the Teessiders have an immediate chance to put it right when Leeds United are their latest visitors tomorrow evening.
