Boro Have Struggled - But Sammy Gains Experience

Sammy Ameobi says Boro have toughened him up in the Championship, even though the club have dropped out of the promotion race since he joined.

Sammy is on a half-season loan at promotion-chasing Middlesbrough, and he is hoping to help the club win promotion to the Premier League.

Sammy Ameobi: “It’s going well - I’m glad to be getting some games under my belt.

“I’m feeling part of the team. Hopefully, I’ll continue getting games and impress the manager.

"Games are what I need for my confidence and development as a player.

“I’m playing week in, week out, and keeping my fitness levels on.

“Middlesbrough are trying to get in the play-offs, and I’m trying my best to help the club do that.

“It’s not easy. The ball turns over a lot more. There’s a lot more running. You have to be strong, but I’m enjoying every minute of it.

“Hopefully, we’ll get that play-off spot, and Newcastle are doing great right now, especially in Europe.

“I’ve already taken a lot from the games I’ve played, and I’m stronger physically.

“Hopefully, I can bring that back to Newcastle.”
