Boro boss tips Boyd to fire in the goals

Published Add your comment

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray insists he is more than happy with the performances of striker Kris Boyd.

Boro made a flying start to the game at Scunthorpe, taking the lead in the sixth minute through Boyd, who grabbed his fifth of the season and Mowbray was full of praise for the former Rangers striker.

"There has been some negatives about him. He is the type of player that if he is not scoring people can focus on the negatives,'' said Mowbray. "You're never going to take away his ability to get in those positions to score but every player needs a player who is going to put the ball in the back of the net."

"He can be largely anonymous but then you look against his name and he has a goal against his name and I'm delighted he did so again.''
