Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray says his side's home form may have ruined their chances of making this season's Championship playoffs.
Boro have been among the top six for most of the campaign, although they've managed to score just 20 goals at the Riverside.
The inability to find the net was a problem during their last game against Doncaster on Tuesday, which ended 0-0. The result means Middlesbrough are now four points adrift of Blackpool and Cardiff, who occupy fifth and sixth.
If either side record more than a point this weekend, it would leave Boro's promotion hopes hanging by a thread.
Speaking ahead of his team's home match with second placed Southampton tomorrow, Mowbray said: "The disappointment of dropping two points at home on Tuesday night was a huge blow to us.
"It's been a struggle for most the season at home to open teams up. We haven't scored enough goals this season.
"But let's wait and see. You never know in football."
