New Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray will go for goals as he attempts to turn the club's season around.

The former Celtic boss knows all about the prowess of strikers Kris Boyd and Scott McDonald and is determined to provide them with the service they need to drag Boro away from the foot of the table.

Mowbray told the Evening Gazette: "We don't seem to be able to score goals at the moment - obviously it's something we must deal with.

"But when you look at the players we have got here, Kris Boyd and Scott McDonald are two of the most prolific scorers of all time in Scotland so we know we have something to work with.

"It's all about looking at the team as a whole and getting the balance right. It's all about the chemistry of the side.

"We have to get this right and give players the opportunity to score more goals. It means being more creative."
