O'Neil: Middlesbrough must get nasty
"We can't afford to think that we're too good to be in this position," O'Neil said. "We're in a scrap and we've got to accept it. I think we need to win games as ugly as we can.
"We are still confident of having a decent season. It's never easy playing football when you're down at the bottom. It's a tough position to be in. We have a lot of young players and it's important everyone steps up, accepts responsibility, accepts the ball and still tries to play."
