Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray has written off his side's chances of making this season's Championship playoffs after a horrible 2013 for the Teessiders.
Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray is refusing to rule out his side's chances of qualifying for this season's Championship play-offs.
Boro are now six points adrift of the play-off positions after last nights 0-0 draw at home to Peterborough.
Championship side Middlesbrough have signed Newcastle winger Sammy Ameobi on loan until the end of the season.
Manager Tony Mowbray said: "He gives us a different option and more options in a similar way to Muzzy Carayol. He's an out and out attacking wide player, who can operate on either side and will be ideal when we want to play with two wingers."
