Having brought in Darnell Fisher and Yannick Bolasie during the week, and handed them their debuts at Carrow Road, Warnock is hoping to further add to his squad ahead of Monday’s deadline.

“I’d certainly like to add one more, perhaps even two – we’ll just have to see what happens over the next couple of days,” he said.

“We’re still in a decent position in the table and after this result the challenge now is to put together another run and see where it takes us.”

Warnock had mixed feelings after watching his side hold Championship leaders Norwich to a goalless draw at Carrow Road.

It was an excellent result for a team who had suffered successive home defeats, but could have been even better as they played the final quarter against 10 men following the dismissal of Emi Buendia.

Boro were unable to make the extra man count in a game of few clear-cut chances, having being grateful for a bad miss from Norwich’s Mario Vrancic in the early stages.

“You’ve got to be happy coming here and getting a draw – but there’s little tinge of sadness that we haven’t got the three points,” said Warnock.

“I think they’ve been fabulous today – the lads. They gave me everything. I’m proud of them. After three games in five and a half days, the travelling that we’ve done, it’s a remarkable effort.
