Sammy Put Through His Paces In Smog City
Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray admits he is delighted with how Sammy Ameobi has settled into life at The Riverside.
Tony Mowbray: "I'm delighted with Sammy.
"He scored on his debut and made Scott's goal the other night by beating his man and crossing the ball into the six-yard box.
"He's had a good impact.
"I think the Championship has been an eye-opener for him.
"I don't think he's ever been asked to run as hard and as far as he's been asked to run in the last two games.
"The Championship is so competitive and so in-your-face that possession switches a lot more from one team to the other than it does in the Premier League.
"Sammy's got someone shouting in his ear to get back and get in front of his full-back, and I think he's found that quite physically demanding.
"But I think it will only help him in the long run and enable him to grow into the Premier League footballer I know he's capable of becoming.
"We're delighted he's here, and let's hope he can contribute hugely in the next ten games for us."
