Boro Boss Mowbray Wins Championship Award

Boro Boss Mowbray Wins Championship Award

Cardiff City face a difficult looking fixtures against in-form Middlesbrough who travel to CCS tomorrow for a match that will have a big say in who occupies the top spots in the league for the next week.

Such is Middlesbrough's form that they have rocketed up the table and Mowbray was today named manager-of-the-moth for October. That accolade never did us much good in the past and on the handful of occasion that I remember Dave Jones being named as MOTM - we promptly went on to lose the next game!

Speaking of the award, Mowbray told BBC Sport:

'It's a reflection of how well the club is going at the moment, how well the players are gelling and how much they've found a spirit to help them win football matches.'

'It's about how hard the coaching staff are working, how hard everyone behind the scenes is working to make it a happy camp.'



Middlesbrough are a very good side, and are bang in form. This will surely be the biggest test of Cardiff City's flawless home record and with current injury problems affecting the Bluebirds - a point would represent a good result.

However, in Noone, Whittingham and Co. The Bluebirds always have goals in us, and we retain a strong centre-back partenrship capable of keeping things tight. Hopefully, City can steal a march on our rivals and secure another win. Back-to-back wins against Hull City and Middlesbrough would be the perfect reposte to the disappointing away form but that remains a tough ask.
