Bad run 'draining belief', says Wheater

Defender David Wheater concedes Middlesbrough's long winless streak is starting to have an effect on the squad.

The last time Gareth Southgate's side took three points from a league match was when Tuncay Sanli's double sank Aston Villa on November 9.

Since then Boro have played 12 times in the top flight without success and Wheater admits it is beginning to "drain belief" among the players.

The unwanted streak, which has left Boro second bottom, reached perhaps its worst point on January 17 when they succumbed 3-0 to fellow relegation strugglers West Bromwich Albion and that result has been followed by a 2-0 defeat at Chelsea and a goalless stalemate at home to Blackburn Rovers.

"We've not been on the best run of late but we're trying our hardest," Wheater told the club's website.

"We know where we are, we are realists. Runs like this do drain belief to an extent but the coaches and the manager are keeping our heads up and showing us we are doing a lot right. We just need to do more.

"We have a bunch of confident lads but that needs to be turned into results."

Wheater is hoping the improved performance from his fellow defenders in the clash with Rovers can provide a springboard for a mini-revival.

"We defended much better against Blackburn and we hope that's a start," he said.

"The fact is win a couple and we are out of where we are, not clear but out of the bottom three."
