Boro Must Replace Missing Class

Chris Riggott: “Over the last few years there have been a few sales but there has been a steady group of players who have formed the core so there has been continuity.

“But a new manager has every right to come in and bring in his own men in. He will know who he wants and he will be trying, I’m sure.

“From a personal point of view it’s difficult to say just how much change is needed here. I think we are missing a bit of backbone, a bit of experience, that’s fair comment.

“When the chips are down, like when we conceded at Barnsley, we could do with looking round and seeing a few experienced players around us. That’s what we are missing.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if the manager brings a few players in.

“It’s to be expected and I’m sure he has a few in his mind who he would like.

“I’m not sure who because January is notoriously a tricky time to get players to sign. Whether he gets two, three or four in we will have to wait and see but I’m sure he will be trying.”
