The Teessiders trounced Doncaster 4-0 in last Friday night's Sky Bet Championship clash at the Riverside Stadium just days after Tony Mowbray's departure, and the caretaker manager is hoping they will continue in the same vein to achieve the kind of results he and Mowbray did at their former clubs.

Venus told the Evening Gazette: "I'm not going to shy away from attacking football. I have to go back to what got us success at other clubs.

"It's about time the players let themselves loose, to be honest. That's what I was hoping they would do.

"We have to work on the defensive side of things, of course, but all I could do was prepare them, talk to them, tell them what I expected and they tried to put that in place on Friday.

"We now have to grow off the back of this."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
