Neil Warnock says his side will be taking a front foot approach at Bournemouth on Good Friday (kick-off 3pm).

The Boro manager has already named his team to his squad, and says he’ll be looking to attack the Cherries, who are two places and three points closer to the play-off places.

“I don’t think anyone is giving us much of a chance now, so I feel like we might as well have a go,” he said.

“You’ll see from my team selection that’s what I want to do.

“That’s what frustrated me in the first half at Millwall. There’s certain things I can’t tolerate, but I don’t mind getting beat if we give it a good go.

“I’ve made that known to the players, and they know that once it’s said, it’s done.

“I told the lads my team on Monday, which is unusual. One or two still have things to show me, they know exactly what we’re planning and what I want from them.”

The Boro boss says he does have a few injuries to contend with following the international break, while Northern Ireland duo Paddy McNair and George Saville could be involved after playing for their country in Belfast last night.

“We’ve had a couple of knocks in training,” Warnock said.

“When you’ve had the amount of games and intensity, it’s a fine line between training and resting, and you can pick up injuries out of nowhere.

“Paddy and George lasted the games with Northern Ireland, they will fly down to Southampton and meet with the squad there.

“I didn’t want to play either of them if I didn’t have to, but it looks like I may have to.

“Looking round the squad yesterday we are a bit thin, we just have to work with what we’ve got and give it our best shot.”
