Mowbray: I won't walk away

Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray has no plans to walk away from the club, despite their poor form ruling out a Premier League return for another season.

Boro have only managed two league wins in 2013 and are closer to the relegation zone than the play-off positions in the Championship as the season nears a close but Mowbray is defiant about his position.

"I'm a fighter, I'm not going to walk away from anything," he told BBC Tees. "I'll never give in. You'd have to ask the chairman about my future. If he feels someone can come in and do a better job, that's his prerogative."

A 2-0 defeat to Brighton at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday, a fifth failure to score in six games, again raised doubts about Boro's credentials to challenge for promotion because of their inability to score goals.

Mowbray insists he knows what is going wrong and will attempt to remedy the situation in the summer if he is given the opportunity.

"I'm saying the same things every week because it's obvious what the problem is," he added. "The boys are working hard but nothing is dropping and we can't score.

"These defeats against Hull and Brighton, were they any better than us? No. But we are not winning football matches. I know the fans are angry and upset. They want us in the Premier League. So do I and so does the chairman.

"We're going backwards at the moment and ultimately the chairman will make the big decisions, but I won't quit. Let's see what the summer brings."
