The Boro manager gave us the lowdown ahead of tomorrow's match-up with the Swans (3pm).

In Quotes

On the start to the season:

I don't think you can take any notice of the league table until maybe 15, 16 games in. It's still very early in the season and it's a marathon, not a sprint.

But you wouldn't change what we've done. We've had a fantastic start. 

On saying his team hasn't been clinical enough:

It's being constructive in terms of winning a game of football. I don't think anyone can deny we deserved to win the game against Bolton, we played exceptionally well in the first half.

But we should have had more than one goal going in at half-time.

On George Saville:

He's only been in with us a few days after the international break. He's a really good lad and has settled in.

He played OK on Wednesday and his goal showed what he can do. I still think there's a lot more to come out of him. He scored 10 for Millwall last season and we want him scoring goals for us.

On Swansea:

It would have been wonderful to have two South Wales clubs in the top flight, I'll always have a soft spot for that area and look out for the results.

Graham Potter did a fantastic job in Scandinavia with limited resources, and it's certainly outside of the box in terms of an appointment, but he's certainly making a good fist of it.

They've set their stall out how they want to get promotion again so fair play to them.
