​Karanka bullish on Middlesbrough survival in top flight

Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka was positive about his side's hopes of Premier League survival.

They sit one place above the relegation zone.

"I always said it would be tough, and for me, we are in the position I thought we would be," said the Spaniard.

"With the performances and games we have played, we could have 32 points, but we have 22. You have to trust in yourself, and the players trust in themselves – we have to keep working together."

"I think it starts from me as the coach, if I go to the pitch with my heading looking at the floor they will be the same. I trust them, they have showed me what we can do."
