Mowbray excited at potential

Mowbray excited at potential

Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray believes supporters are beginning to see the best of winger Mustapha Carayol.

The former Bristol Rovers forward moved to Teesside last summer but his progress was cruelly halted after a knee injury ruled him out for five months of the campaign.

However, Carayol, 23, claimed his fourth goal of the season while helping his side to a first win in eight games against Nottingham Forest earlier this week.

"It's taken him a while to get used to the speed of the Championship, and the demands," Mowbray told BBC Tees. "But when he's in possession and running at full-backs you get excited.

"He does what he was brought for, to isolate players, to get past them and get the ball in the box. and he added to that by getting the goal," he continued. "I remember sitting down with him in my office and he was really emotional at a first serious injury. For a young boy it was really hard to take."
