MIDDLESBROUGH manager Chris Wilder is looking forward to a full week on the training ground with his players as the team look to build on their first win under the new boss.

Boro produced a comprehensive display on Saturday earning a 2-1 win against Huddersfield Town. Duncan Watmore scored twice in the first 23 minutes as Boro ran the show in West Yorkshire. The Terriers responded with a stoppage time as Luke Daniels scored an own goal.

The victory moves Boro up to 12th in the Championship table and reduce the gap to the play-offs to six points.

It was third time lucky for Wilder as a busy week saw his first run of games earn a draw against Millwall and suffer a defeat to Preston North End in midweek.

The 54-year-old has said on numerous occasions that a lot of information has been thrown at the players in such a short space of time. While he’s been full of praise for the way his players have taken the message on board, Wilder admits no midweek game this week will be put to good use.

He said: “We talked about how hectic the Championship is. The travelling you have to do and the games come thick and fast.

“Especially with new ideas coming into the group, it hasn’t been ideal because we have been recovering and then chucking stuff at them from set plays and everything that you are trying to cover in that early part.

“I think you’ve seen today (against Huddersfield) that they took on board quite a lot of the stuff. There’s still a lot of work to be done and it will be a little bit easier when we’ve got back to back games on a Saturday.

“Looking forward to a good positive week. Four points out of nine is okay but we’re always after a little bit more and I’ll always be that manager that’s after a little bit more as well.

“We’ll have a good week and see if we can go again on Saturday.”

Swansea City are the next opponents for Boro as they make the long trip to the Riverside Stadium this weekend.
