We were too anxious - Monk

We were too anxious - Monk

Manager Garry Monk says his Middlesbrorugh players became too anxious on occasions in their latest game.

That follows goals from Martin Braithwaite and Fabio eventually rescuing them a 2-2 draw with Brentford after twice being behind at the Riverside.

"The intention of the players is clear, they want to go and do the right things, strangely I sense a bit of anxiety in them," Monk reflected to BBC Sport. "It led to certain mistakes with the ball, the goals we conceded were from our own doing. A set-piece for the first, probably the first we have conceded from a set piece.

"Credit to them getting back into it again and maybe even nicking a winner again," he added. "Perspective, though, because we have lost one in nine, yes we want more, yes we want more in the performance, but we have lost one in nine."

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.
