Middlesbrough Sack Tony Mowbray

Tony MowbrayMiddlesbrough have shown boss Tony Mowbray the door following a dire start to the campaign. Boro have scraped together just two wins from their opening 12 games, leaving them struggling down in 12th and already a sizeable 10 points adrift of the play-offs. Saturday's 3-2 defeat to Barnsley proved to be the final straw and Chairman Steve Gibson reacted by sending Mowbray packing on Monday night.

Mowbray, who was in charge for three-years, had been the Championship’s longest-serving manager since late September when Nigel Clough was surprisingly axed by Derby County. However, one win from their last 10 league games is not play-off form and the club have decided it is time for a change.

Mowbray was appointed Boro boss in October 2010 and proceeded to guide the club to 12th come the end of the season. In his first full campaign at the helm he led Boro to 7th, missing out on a play-off spot by just one spot. Boro put that disappointment behind them and enjoyed a bright start to the 2012/13 campaign, and were placed well in early January, however a torrid run of results saw them slump to a 16th place finish.

The Riverside club have revealed that Mowbray’s assistant Mark Venus will take charge for their match at home to Doncaster Rovers on Friday. The betting is predictably tight at this stage with the out-of-work trio of Tony Pulis, Martin O'Neill and Nigel Clough have emerged as the main contenders in the Next Middlesbrough Manager Market. Meanwhile Venus could propel himself in the mix with a win on Friday, whereas former player Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is also worth keeping an eye on.
