Jonathan Woodgate in relegation blast at Middlesbrough ahead of Leeds clash

Jonathan Woodgate has accused his relegation threatened Boro players of getting “complacent.”

The rookie coach has fired warning to his squad saying they need to adopt a “fight for your life” mentality ahead of a clash with promotion chasing Leeds.

Boro lost to Barnsley at the weekend plunging them deep into trouble in the Championship.

They've not won since New Year's Day losing four out of eight league games, and are now fifth bottom three points ahead of the drop zone.

Woodgate said: “Maybe we got a bit complacent. Maybe we thought we were already clear. I didn’t. I never thought we were clear even when it was 10 points.

“With Barnsley (reviving) maybe it is because they are actually in the relegation zone and we weren’t.

“Maybe they were fighting for their lives. Maybe we got a bit complacent.

We are still right in it. They know the situation. It isn’t rocket science.
