Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis has insisted that the standard of the Championship continues to improve every season.
It has been some years since Pulis last managed in the second tier of English football, having been in the Premier League since he earned promotion with Stoke City, which was followed up with spells with Crystal Palace and West Brom.
But, since taking over at Boro last season, the manager believes the quality has improved.
“I can’t see it changing, I can’t see the of run game being any different to what they have been. The window will be big for a lot of clubs and if they can bring in players to make them more potent and it’s going to be a big window coming up.’’ Pulis told his Friday press conference.
”The league’s changed now, you look at the quality of the players, the stadiums, the coaches who are in this league and the way they set up their teams, it’s a very exciting league and it’s a league that’s only going to get better.”
Pulis’ side host Aston Villa at the Riverside at 5:30pm on Saturday.
