Tony Mowbray: wants to consolidate league position
Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray is demanding his players turn the Riverside Stadium into a fortress as they prepare to face Bolton.
Boro go into Saturday's clash third in the Championship table after Tuesday's 2-0 win over Hull.
And Mowbray wants his players to utilise their home advantage in order to maintain their promotion push against Bolton, who are yet to appoint their new manager despite speculation that former Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman will take over.
Mowbray told the club's official website: "We have to try to make this place difficult for every team to come and play.
"Bolton will be tough. They have come out of the Premier League and they look like they have got a new manager, and they will all be looking to impress Dougie.
"They have got footballers who can hurt you if you are not well organised. But it's another opportunity for us at home and we will give it everything we can to get the points."
