Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder: Our fans will expect us to beat Millwall

Chris Wilder says Middlesbrough will be expected to beat Millwall when they face off after the international break. The former Sheffield United boss has been appointed the new Boro manager, replacing Neil Warnock.

Wilder said: “People will turn up expecting us to beat Millwall and put a performance on.

“I’ve got to climb another mountain, that’s what it’s all about. There are some very talented players at the club.

“It’s about getting to know them, putting the early messages down with staff and players and implementing our ideas as quickly as we possibly can.

“I want us to be aggressive, competitive. I want us to express ourselves, play in the right way and play effective football.

“There are different ways to win a football match, it’s not about being pigeon holed, I’ll be versatile. All I can predict is my teams will have a right go. If it doesn’t happen, my teams will know about it, and so will you.

“The first team has a lot of talented players. There is a core group of talented boys who, on their best day, can mix it with the best in this division.”
