Mowbray disappointed at Watford defeat

Competition: npower Championship

Venue: Riverside Stadium

Final score: Middlesbrough 1-2 Watford

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray has spoken of his disappointment after watching his team slip to a 2-1 defeat at home to Watford on Saturday.

Boro dominated the first-half but it was striker Matej Vydra who opened the scoring for the away side against the run of play. The Czech Republic international then added a second goal for the Hornets late on.

Scott McDonald headed in an equaliser for Middlesbrough in stoppage time but Gianfranco Zola's team hung on for the win.

Mowbray looking for "huge win"

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray says this weekend's game against Watford presents a real opportunity for his side in the race for promotion to the Premier League.

Boro go into Saturday's match at the Riverside knowing that a win could put them ten points clear of the Hornets in the Championship table.

Speaking ahead of the clash, Mowbray said: "It would be a huge win for us I think, which would really keep them at arms length and establish a real gap from the play-off positions for us. So it's a big game.

"I don't think of them as six pointers. I just think of them as the next game, another three points, another opportunity to add to our tally to get into the 50s points wise and keep going."
