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."
