Oh yeah, I'm sure he will mate and I imagine a 1-0 win will do just fine for him and for a lot of people on here. But a 1-1 draw or a 0-0 draw or even a defeat won't. You make every game close then you leave yourself open to being on the wrong end of things.
I think Warnock will hold his nerve and keep things just as they have been, tight and controlled and looking for breaks, errors and set pieces. A 1-0 win will do just fine in his book as much as we the fans would love to see a swashbuckling performance. If the opposition is poorly organised and get themselves in a muddle then we could nick a few but I don't expect to see a Warnock team going for it as nice as it would be.
It's what Boro used to play back in 95/96 with Hignett and Barmby behind Fjortoft and then Juninho and Barmby behind him. We also had the wingbacks, Cox on one side and Chris Morris on the other, Pearson, Vickers and Whyte at the back, Mustoe and Pollock in midfield. As a link to Coventry, we beat them 2-1 early in the season with that very line up 🙌
