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."
