Middlesbrough boss Chris Wilder took over the reins this season and has transformed the side into one of the main contenders for the playoff places. With their run of form, a place in the top two could be achieved as well. Wilder took Sheffield United back into the Premier League in 2019. He is a winner and has proven his mettle wherever he has gone.

“There were 30,000 here on Boxing Day,” Middlesbrough boss Chris Wilder said. “But it doesn’t count for anything if you’re not winning. Winning takes you where you want to be.”

“It’s a fabulous club here with a brilliant history,” he added. “The players have reacted to us coming in and chucking a few new ideas at them. Obviously, there’s been a reaction because of the performances and the results. But we want to keep it going and keep it moving forward.”

“I’m a big believer that these are team awards,” says Wilder. “Even from Isaiah’s point of view, it’s the team performances that have allowed him to play so well. But he is an exciting young player who has clearly caught the eye. It’s his first season at Championship level and he has been outstanding since we’ve come into the building. The message to him will be he has to keep his head down and keep his form and place in the team. We want competition and we’ll make sure he doesn’t get carried away. But it’s been a really good start to his professional career.”
