Teessiders Jonathan Woodgate and Tony Mowbray go head-to-head in the dugout, and the current Boro head coach was on the terraces when the now Blackburn boss led the team out at Ayresome Park. 

And Mogga was the manager who brought Woodgate back to the north east for his second spell as a Boro player, installing the now head coach as his skipper.

There's a strong Teesside connection on the pitch too - with ex-Boro players Stewart Downing, Richie Smallwood, Harry Chapman and Danny Graham set for a possible Rovers return, and our own Academy lads continue to play a prominent part in the first team set-up.
