MIDDLESBROUGH boss Tony Mowbray hopes Kei Kamara can maintain his impressive start to life on Teesside.
The former Norwich striker, snapped up from Sporting Kansas City in a £900,000 deadline-day swoop, has notched in each of his two starts for Boro, and will look to make it a hat-trick in Saturday’s testing trip to Championship pace-setters QPR.
“Kei’s looking fine,” said Mowbray. “He looked composed on Saturday (in the dramatic 3-3 draw against Bournemouth), he looked a threat, he looked powerful.
“I also thought he acquitted himself very, very well at Forest (where Boro drew 2-2 last midweek).
“He was a threat to them.
“I think his athleticism added to his power and size is important, and his composure on the ball was good.”
“He’s a really positive guy, creates a lovely atmosphere around the training sessions with his positivity. Let’s see if can continue to produce.”
