'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Defender keeps faith

Middlesbrough defender Jonathan Woodgate still believes promotion to the Premier League can be achieved this season despite a recent slide down the table.

Boro dropped to ninth following their 2-0 weekend defeat to bottom club Bristol City - their ninth loss in twelve league games since New Year.

"I still believe we can do it, until it's mathematically impossible," Woodgate told BBC Tees. "There's no point playing football if we don't believe in it.

"It will go to the wire, but the most disappointing thing was it was in our hands, when we were around the top at one point and flying," he added. "But I think maybe a bit of complacency came in."
