Sky Bet Championship: Albert Adomah says Middlesbrough can handle home pressure

Middlesbrough midfielder Albert Adomah is calling for patience as Aitor Karanka's side attempt to end their bout of home sickness.

The Teessiders entertain Brentford in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday having lost their last two league games at the Riverside Stadium, to Sheffield Wednesday and Reading.

However, Adomah admits the weight of expectation adds to the pressure with Boro looking for a third win in a week after successes on the road at Huddersfield and Cardiff.

He told the club's official website: "Home games are difficult no matter who you're playing.

"It doesn't matter if it's a big or small team you're playing because the supporters always expect nothing less than you to win the game.

"Obviously, there's a little bit of pressure, but as players we just have to adapt to that.

"Sometimes the game-plan doesn't go the way you want and supporters get a little bit frustrated, but that's football."
