Middlesbrough midfielder Adam Clayton: You have to keep believing

Middlesbrough midfielder Adam Clayton: You have to keep believing

He said: "If you asked the other teams, 'Are Middlesbrough one of the three worst teams in the league?', I don't suppose many would say we are".

Up next for Boro is a winnable game against Bournemouth on Saturday, with the manager adding: "This group don't know how to give in and they will never, ever stop".

"We've been in most games and only been pipped by that extra bit of quality that you need to have".

"There are enough points still to play for", he said.

Leicester won seven of their last nine fixtures during the 2014-15 campaign to remain in the league and Sunderland survived a year ago by avoiding defeat in their last six games.

"We have to keep believing and keep our chin up". If we don't, it will be goodnight.

Graham said Russian Federation "intentionally, in my view, left chemical weapons in the hand of Assad, their proxy". In a statement later, Johnson said, "Developments in Syria have changed the situation fundamentally".

Arsenal travel north to Middlesbrough to face the relegation-staving side in desperate need of a win.

"We have no doubt it will be a really hard game, but we'll continue to prepare and we're looking forward to it". One win will change it all.

The home crowd could be important, and if the few Arsenal fans that are there start showing displeasure if we don't start scoring early, it could be another uncomfortable afternoon for Arsene Wenger. "That's what we'll do we will prepare for Bournemouth and go down there with plenty of confidence".

"Our movement and ability to create has been evident - we just need to make sure when the chance comes along we take it".

Boro's task is likely to be made even tougher by their hard run-in, with Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool providing three of their final four opponents this season.
