Tony Mowbray said he was disappointed and frustrated to lose 1-0 against Swansea City yesterday.

Scott Sinclair netted the winning goal with just 5 minutes remaining after a dominant performance from the home team.

Middlesbrough were looking good for a point and like Mowbray says his side could even have got all three with a few chances late on.

‘I was disappointed and frustrated,’

‘The longer the game went on the more I thought we may sneak a goal, although it would have been harsh on them.

‘We knew they would have a lot of ball and we tried to frustrate them and in that last 20 minutes we had a couple of chances.

‘For the goal there was a big deflection that took the ball past the keeper, who was excellent today.

‘The plus points for us today were our work ethic and team spirit, but when we had the ball we were not as good and we need to improve on that area as a team and we will be working on that over the next few weeks.’
