Ex-Middlesbrough boss reveals club's interest in Premier League defender, Stoke City eye £10m winger
Middlesbrough left it late to beat Coventry City in the Championship on Wednesday night, as Neil Warnock's side showed real grit to come back from a goal down to beat the Sky Blues 2-1, with George Saville bagging an 87th minute winner.
The win sees Boro keep the pace in the race for the play-offs, following an action-packed bill of midweek action that saw every side in the top-ten bar Brentford pick up a win.Speaking after the game, Warnock revealed his delight with the impact made by his substitutes - Yannick Bolasie, Marvin Johnson Duncan Watmore and George Saville - and claimed: “I thought all the subs made a difference, it’s nice to have those options on the bench.“It’s a difficult pitch and they’ve changed style completely since the start of the season so we had a taste of that against Cardiff and I thought tonight was very similar.
“I thought we coped with that after another long throw, disaster. I thought we grew into the game then and deserved it in the second half.”
Next up, Boro travel to take on fourth placed Swansea City this weekend, in what should be a fiercely-contest clash between two well-matched sides.
