Confidence is suffering - Mowbray

Confidence is suffering - Mowbray

Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray admitted confidence continues to suffer following their latest 3-2 defeat at relegation-threatened Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Midfielder Grant Leadbitter struck twice for the visitors but it wasn't enough as they proceeded to lose for the eleventh time in fourteen league games.

The result leaves Boro still down in ninth place in the table but six points short of the play-offs with only seven games remaining.

"I stopped looking at the table in my mind a few weeks ago," Mowbray told BBC Sport. "We just have to win football matches. If we win games let's see where the season takes us. But obviously we are finding it difficult to matches at the moment.

"Confidence does get eroded with defeats and yet the defeats probably come along because you don't have key players available," he admitted. "I felt that we gave Wolves a tough game but the reality is that we did not get any points."
