West Brom And Boro Cling Onto Faint Hopes!

Last updated : 16 May 2009 By Boro Mad
Southgate claims four points could save Boro, and Tony Mowbray will have to rewrite the record books against Liverpool on Sunday to keep alive the club's bid to pull off another 'Great Escape'.

The Baggies need to avoid defeat to take their battle for survival to the final game of the season at Blackburn.

But history is not on Albion's side - they have yet to score a goal, let alone pick up a point in the Premier League against Liverpool.

In seven meetings between the sides they have conceded 22 goals, losing 5-0 and 6-0 at home in 2003 and 2004.

Mowbray: "Liverpool would not be first choice of teams to play this weekend but that is the way that the fixtures come out and we have to believe that we can go out and get a result against them.

"They have lost two games this season, one of those was against Middlesbrough, a team who are on the same number of points as us.

"We can take a little bit of belief from the fact that you can catch them on a day when they are not quite at it for whatever reason.

"For us, we will have to be at our very best and they will have to be a bit below par.

"But we have shown in recent weeks, particularly at home, that we can score goals and that is what we have got to try and do again this Sunday."
