Jonathan Woodgate has elected to split his Boro squad over two friendlies on Saturday to offer the maximum amount of playing time to the players he has at his disposal.

A handful of first team faces are set to feature up the road at Heritage Park in a friendly match against Northern League side Bishop Auckland, which kicks off at 1pm. Leo Percovich and Under-23s Lead Coach Graeme Lee will lead the Boro team there.

Tickets at Heritage Park are available on the gate, costing £6 for adults, £4 for Over-65s and £2 for Under-16s.

Meanwhile, Woodgate has taken a small travelling party to face 2. Bundesliga side Heidenheim, kicking off two hours later (3pm UK time) at the Voith-Arena.

Tickets are also available on the day over in Germany.

There will not be video streams or radio coverage of either game on Saturday.

However, we'll have in-game updates via our official Twitter feed, as well as reports, reaction and highlights after the final whistle at both games here at mfc.co.uk.
