Jones Solves One Problem For Southgate!

Last updated : 03 February 2009 By Boro Mad

Brad Jones is hoping his man-of-the-match display against Blackburn on Saturday will ensure he remains in the Middlesbrough side at Man City this weekend.

The Australian international kept a clean sheet as Boro picked up a point in their battle against the odds against a lively Rovers side.

Jones: "The manager decided to change it and obviously I'm delighted to be back in the frame.

"I'm not the best sub in the world, I'm a moody so and so at times but Ross has done really well when he has come in.

"There is nothing personal between us, we're still good mates and we'll just both continue to do what we've been doing which is pushing each other every day in training.

"He's (Turnbull) a top bloke, everyone in the dressing room will say the same and nothing will change that.

"Obviously we both want to play but there's only one position. He had a run and he's done very well indeed, he hasn't done himself any harm whatsoever.

"Now I'm determined to keep myself there. What I don't want is another injury so touch wood I'll be alright now!"
