Mowbray calls for positive Boro

Mowbray calls for positive Boro

Middlesbrough travel to another side really batttling for points when visiting relegation-threatened Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend.

The visitors are waiting on Chelsea loanee midfielder Josh McEachran after hurting his ankle while on duty for England Under-21 in midweek.
Forward Emmanuel Ledesma (ankle) is similarly struggling but full-back Stuart Parnaby (hamstring) has returned to training.

"We have an opportunity with these next two games to try to get some real positivity going," manager Tony Mowbray told Boro's official website. "If we don't get the result it won't be through lack of preparation, work on the training ground, or trying. We will go to Wolves and try to get the points.

"The belief that we can get promotion has to remain," he continued. "There are no easy games, they're all tough, but there's no reason we can't win tough football matches, as we showed when we beat Cardiff. The players know it can be done."

Wolves are without Carl Ikeme (hand), Bakary Sako (hamstring) and Dave Edwards (metatarsal) and therefore loan signings Nouha Dicko and goalkeeper Marian Kell could both earn debuts.
