With a sell-out near 5,000 Boro fans set to travel to Wigan on Saturday, goalkeeper Dimi Konstantopoulos has praised the fans' unwavering loyalty on the road this campaign.

"It's fantastic having so many fans travelling with us to Wigan," said Dimi. 

"All of the lads in the dressing room have been talking about how the away support has been brilliant this season, but for me the away support has been brilliant since I came to the club. 

"We've had some massive followings as far away as Brighton and Bournemouth and our fans have still been really loud and arrived in numbers. 

"Once again, it's going to be a fantastic one and playing in front of that away support for big spells of the game makes you feel at home - it's a big boost to the boys and credit to the fans. 

"Of course you feel a bit easier when you have your own fans behind you in goal, but as a whole team it's a massive boost as well. 

"We've had games where we've been under pressure and our fans have never stopped cheering and a lot of times that's spurred us on to go and get the result."
