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

We must get stronger - Mowbray

Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray said his squad must be stronger following another defeat in their final game of the season.

On loan Steve Howard and former Boro striker Leroy Lita both struck during the opening half as Sheffield Wednesday secured their own Championship survival with a 2-0 win at Hillsborough.

"We could have gone top on New Year's Day if we'd beaten Derby," Mowbray told BBC Sport. "For 27 games we were as good as anybody in this league, for the rest we have struggled. We've won three of them so it should be no surprise to us we didn't get a victory today, we have to get stronger I think.

"Ultimately the squad has to be stronger and deeper to try and sustain it," he added. "And hopefully you keep your best 11, 12 or 13 players fit for most of the season but we've fallen away, we can't hide that fact, it is what it is."
