Mowbray still believes
Tony Mowbray is refusing to give up on Middlesbrough making the npower Championship play-offs despite overseeing a frustrating goalless draw against Doncaster.
The stalemate at the Riverside, coupled with wins for Blackpool and Cardiff, saw the Boro drift four points off the play-off places with two games remaining. And if the two clubs win their games on Saturday, Middlesbrough's evening meeting with second-placed Southampton could be rendered a dead rubber for Mowbray's side. He said: "We'll keep pushing until the final day. There's a four-point gap, two games to go, so we've got to win two football matches. "That's easier said than done as the next game is at home against a team that could clinch promotion that day, so let's wait and see." On the result, he added: "We shouldn't be surprised. It's been difficult at home recently and again we struggled to put the ball in the back of the net. "It's frustrating, disappointing, and sums us up the second half of the season."
