King happy with ugly wins

16 Mar 2009 - 12:22:24

Striker Marlon King claims he doesn't care how the goals come just as long as Middlesbrough can score enough to stay in the Premier League.

The on-loan striker bundled home a stoppage-time equaliser in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Portsmouth to earn the 19th-placed Teessiders what could prove to be a vital point.

"When you're down at the bottom it's got to look ugly at times to grind out results and that's what we did," he told the club's official website.

"We've got a lot of young lads with talent, but not that many with a wealth of experience and you've got to support each other.

"I know sometimes the fans get frustrated. But all we can do is concentrate on what's happening on the field.

"I've been in a relegation battle before and with nine games to go, we just have to grind out points.

"One win takes us up four or five places and that's what the Premier League is all about."
