GOALKEEPER Chris Day is looking forward to seeing Boro "evolve" into a promotion-winning outfit next season.

The veteran shot-stopper believes other players will raise their game to compensate for Steve Morison's departure and the club's youngsters will emerge stronger having experienced play-off heartache last season.

"We've got a good squad of players and it's a young team. There's time for the team to evolve next season," Day told The Comet.

"Hopefully, we're not going to miss Moro's goals too much as I'm sure other players are going to step up to the plate. We might have to share the goals around as we did for much of last season."
