Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray has his sights set on a play-off place ahead of the visit of Doncaster Rovers to Teesside on Tuesday night.
We've still got a job to do. We're still two points outside the play-offs.Tony Mowbray
The Riverside outfit are currently seventh in the Championship table and two points adrift of a spot in the top six, but Mowbray is in a confident mood ahead of the game with already relegated Doncaster.
Boro are 1.33 to secure a three-point haul on Tuesday, the draw is 5.00 and Doncaster are 8.50 to pick up an unlikely victory.

Mowbray's side host Southampton in their penultimate Championship fixture and travel to Watford on the final day of the campaign, and the Boro boss is confident his side can get among the top six and challenge for promotion.
"We've still got a job to do. We're still two points outside the play-offs, but we've now got two home games," Mowbray told the Gazette.
"We've got Doncaster tomorrow night and, if we can beat them, we've got a huge game against Southampton who could be coming to the Riverside to get promotion."
He added: "While we are just two points off the top six, they are looking over their shoulder thinking they can't afford to lose a game.
"We would prefer to be playing Doncaster at home rather than whatever the others have got. I think it's still all to play for."
