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."

Barnsley 2 Middlesbrough 2

Middlesbrough twice came from behind to earn themselves a point at Barnsley after goals from Martin Braithwaite and Britt Assombalonga.

A frantic start to the game witnessed three changes of scoreline inside ten minutes, with Ashley Fletcher responsible for an own-goal against his former club and Cameron McGeehan netting on his home debut.

Summer recruit Braithwaite managed to respond in between those and Boro's record signing Assombalonga later equalised on the hour.
