Morison pre-Middlesbrough | We have to get the balance right

Steve Morison spoke to the press ahead of our trip to the Riverside Stadium to face Middlesbrough on Tuesday evening.

"They had a great win against Sunderland recently, so it's going to be a tough game." Steve began. "It's a tough place to go; they are unbeaten at home, and they've got a top manager and top players. We've got to be on it to win the game.

"We had a plan in place from the Hull game all the way up to the Huddersfield game. Obviously, the Hull game didn't take place, but we continue with that plan for the rest of the week.

"That's what we've got a squad for, and we'll use everyone over the two games if we have to, to give ourselves the best chance to pick up some results. We have to get the balance right."

Callum Robinson joins the Bluebirds from WBA...

Morro went on to discuss Callum Robinson's first full week on the training pitch, before summarising City's season so far.

He said: "Obviously, Callum's had a bit more time with the lads in training now. He joined on the Thursday, trained on the Friday, and got 45 minutes in his legs at Millwall.

"It puts him in a better place than he would have been if the Hull game had gone ahead on Saturday. He's an excellent player, and he brings that quality to the group, in everything he does."

Steve continued, "We're eight games in, and we're a work in progress. If we win on Tuesday night we're back into mid-table, so it's up and down like a yo-yo at the minute. Anyone can beat anyone.

"I think we've got the ability to do different things, play different players and manage players accordingly. It's about keeping these players fit, ready and hungry, and working hard on the training ground. Hopefully the outcomes will come on the pitch."
