Jonathan Woodgate bemoaned his side's poor start in today's 3-0 loss to Swansea City.
The Boro boss admitted Boro were far from good enough, particularly in the early stages.
"They carved us open on numerous occasions in the first half hour," he said.
"Our fans are very good but we can't blame [them not being here], we need to do more.
"There are big games to go and the next two are huge. We need to perform a lot better, that's without a shadow of a doubt."
