A clearly disappointed Tony Pulis issued an appeal to all Boro fans this morning to get behind all the players as we battle against the odds to stay at the top of the Championship pack. Pulis stark assessment was that we don't have the depth or quality to gain promotion. He is as disappointed as the fans with the failure to land our targets but it is really imperative now we pull together and do not get on any of the players backs as we try to take another 3 points at the Riverside tomorrow.

The club tried and failed to buy 7 or 8 players yesterday, Pulis revealed today but the bottom line is we failed to get any deal over the line. Now we are left with the loan market to top up a squad that the manager assesses does not have the depth to secure promotion. Therefore he is appealing to every Boro fan to get behind the players we have here and give them the lift to build on the four point start and keep the momentum going against Birmingham City tomorrow.

We might expect one or two clubs looking for inflated fees or players looking for inflated demands to be more open to moves in the loan market. Waking up this morning there have to many players well down the pecking order for their clubs. But if we are to move for loans then let it be sooner rather than later, please.

Tony Pulis was keen to deflect any criticism away from Mo Besic after the deal for the Everton midfielder floundered late doors yesterday. The Boro boss maintained Besic was one of multiple targets that all wriggled off the hook.

But whichever way you look at it, the transfer window saw Boro go backwards. We now must get behind the youngsters and indeed the seniors in the squad. Surely Boro have to prevent Martin Braithwaite slipping away and hope the Dane can keep that 2 goals in 2 games run going.

So, get behind the players is the message and mantra from Tony Pulis.
