The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP PLAY-OFFS -

MID­DLES­BROUGH boss Tony Mow­bray says he wants to find some more play­ers like Grant Lead­bit­ter this sum­mer.

The 27-year-old had an im­pres­sive first sea­son with 47 ap­pear­ances af­ter sign­ing from Ip­swich last sum­mer, leav­ing Mow­bray keen to find more like him.

“I have to say we need to try and find a few more Grant Lead­bit­ters this year,” said Mow­bray, whose side dropped away badly to fin­ish 16th.

“Just the qual­ity of the pro he is, the hard work and his hon­esty, which is what makes him a core player and we are work­ing hard to try and find a few more of them, which will help the team.”
