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

Oppositions View: Mowbray Boro (h)



Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray was not a happy man after seeing his side go down 3-2 to Birmingham City after being in front twice.

Boro left St Andrew's with nothing as two goals from Marlon King and a long range strike from Wade Elliott cancelled out Grant Leadbitter and Scott McDonald's efforts and won them their fourth home league win of the season.

It was a disappointment for Mowbray who could have seen his club go level on points at the top of the league with Cardiff.

He told Sky Sports: 'We came to win tonight and tried to be positive. We got our noses in front twice and it's tough to take when you're in front feeling reasonably comfortable.

'I think the nature of the goals were obviously disappointing for us. I don't think they had to work too hard for any of their goals and that's the most disappointing thing for us.

'I haven't seen the penalty again but I've told (Andre Bikey) you can't hang a leg out in the box, you have to defend properly, stay on your feet and push people from goal.'

Is it just me that thinks Mowbray has the ideal face to be one of the strange animals in Lord of the Rings?

If he wasn't a football manager, he would be the old grandad who sits in front of the tv all day watching chanel four racing
