With Boro not in action over the international window, there are plenty of options for fans to get their football fix this weekend.
Saturday October 12 is Non-League Day, the annual celebration of the grassroots game throughout the country.
Always held during the international break, the event is now in its ninth year.
As well as taking in a match in a different setting, it's chance for fans to show their support for smaller, often community-run clubs on their doorstep.
Darlington FC, including Boro loanee Tyrone O'Neill, are looking to make it four wins in a row when they host Boston United.
Our other north east-based loanee is Brad James, whose Gateshead side have won five from their last six and are at home to Gloucester City.
Elsewhere, local clubs Thornaby and Billingham Town go head-to-head in the FA Vase, while Marske United host Marine, with Boro Season Card Holders given a reduced entry fee.
