After back-to-back home wins, there’s a festive feel to Friday night football when we next return to the Riverside.

Christmas will be just around the corner when Stoke City come to Teesside on Friday December 20 (kick-off 7.45pm).

Boro fans, what better way to kick off the festivities with friends, family or workmates than watching your team under the lights?

Victories over Barnsley and Charlton on home turf saw Boro creep up the Championship table.

‘Small steps’, was Jonathan Woodgate’s description, and the Boro boss will no doubt be looking for a return to winning ways at home against Michael O’Neill’s City side.

The first of back-to-back Christmas matches at the Riverside, six points would be the perfect present - and the team will be counting on your support to do it.
