Mowbray calls for resilience

Mowbray calls for resilience

Middlesbrough will be aiming to start moving back in the right direction when taking on Burnley at Turf Moor this evening.

The visitors come into the contest on the back of a dreadful sequence of six league defeats in their last seven games, although they still remain in a play-off position.

Defender Stuart Parnaby definitely misses out with a torn hamstring while there are also current doubts over Jonathan Woodgate (calf), Seb Hines (knee), Scott McDonald (calf), Lukas Jutkiewicz (ankle) and Josh McEachran (ankle).

But striker Curtis Main is added to their squad after serving a one-match ban following his recent winner against Leeds United.

"Burnley are very hard-working and honest and like Crystal Palace have a centre-forward who has scored a lot of their goals in Charlie Austin," manager Tony Mowbray told Boro's official website. "You know where their main threat is, as we did on Saturday and yet were unable to stop Glenn Murray scoring twice.

"But we've gone there in the past and won and that has to be the aim again," he continued. "We need to go there and be more resilient than we've been and work extremely hard."

Burnley already have defenders Ben Mee (knee) and Michael Duff (calf) ruled out but striker Sam Vokes (foot) is once more available.
