As of Thursday lunch-time, we had sold over 30,000. With seats going fast, we’re rapidly closing in on the previous biggest attendance this season – against Sheffield Wednesday on Boxing Day – and the Ticket Office are anticipating a complete sell-out.

Saturday’s match against Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds side is another big fixture for both sides in the race for promotion from the Sky Bet Championship.

Boro will be hoping to add to a battling win at high-scoring West Brom last Saturday, and with impressive results on the road at Derby County and Birmingham City in the bag already this year, The Teessiders are looking to bring that fighting spirit back to the Riverside against the second-placed Whites.

Manager Tony Pulis and his players have emphasised the edge that Boro’s fans can give the team this Saturday, with fans encouraged to buy early and be part of what promises to be a gripping encounter.
