There were smiles all around after Teesside celebrated the return of fans to football.

Over 22,000 created a wonderful atmosphere and goals from home debut men Uche Ikpeazu and Matt Crooks ensured the party went off with a bang as Bristol City were beaten 2-1.

Boss Neil Warnock was able to enjoy his first experience of Boro fans at the Riverside since taking over 14 months ago and he celebrated with all four sides of the ground at the whistle.
