Boro better than Premier League position suggests - Clayton

Boro better than Premier League position suggests - Clayton

Middlesbrough, who are the league's lowest scorers with 22 goals, have not won a league game since mid-December and are languishing in 19th, six points adrift of safety with seven games remaining.

At full time the Chilean, whose future in north London is extremely murky, made his way over to the travelling supporters who had made the 250-mile trip to the North East.

Mesut Ozil scored the victor on 71 minutes after Alvaro Negredo had cancelled out Alexis Sanchez's 42nd minute opener, five minutes after the restart.

After the win, Sanchez delighted the fans with his gesture.

"We pushed them back and your just thinking the ball's going to bounce in the right area", the coach added.

Sin also said six-nation talks aiming to make the Korean Peninsula free of nuclear weapons were "throttled at birth". She said members are working on a statement responding to the latest North Korean missile launch that failed.

"I know it's hard because we don't have a lot of games left, and the teams we're playing against can be unsafe". "We've played against teams and we have been in most games and have been pipped by that extra bit of quality that we need to have", he told reporters.

Middlesbrough are in grave danger of being relegated to the Championship yet have one of the best defensive records in the league, conceding only 37 goals.

However, as he turns his attention to the latest in a series of must-win games at Bournemouth on Saturday, 28-year-old midfielder Clayton is refusing to accept the seemingly inevitable. This is the toughest league there is, but we will keep grafting. "We have to win probably all our games to get into that".

After the game, a proud Agnew praised the determination of his side.

Gibson only signed a new long-term contract last summer but Boro know they'll have no chance of keeping hold of him if they go down while a move could still be on the cards even if the Teeside club manage to avoid the drop.
