Monk wants rapid return

Monk wants rapid return

Middlesbrough must come out of the latest international break properly firing says manager Garry Monk.

The Teessiders have rather lost ground while remaining without a victory in their previous three games, including a couple of frustrating home performances.

"The last international break we talked about needing improvements and they came, this international break we need to look to correct and make further improvements," Monk told the Northern Echo. "We need to come out firing like we did last time.

"We started pretty well in the first few minutes against Brentford, but maybe the anxiety comes from the players to get that first goal quickly," he added. "Maybe we lose a bit of confidence when it doesn't come. We have to stay patient and confident that it will come. We will work on that. The players are fully aware of that."

Boro are next due to visit Barnsley on Saturday-week.

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.
