After a busy week in London, Boro will be homeward bound and have Birmingham City in their sights…
The Teessiders spent last week in the capital between televised tussles with Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham.
Crystal Palace offered their hospitality as Boro remained and trained down south on a temporary basis for the two fixtures.
But as head coach Jonathan Woodgate intimated before departing for the Big Smoke, home is where the heart is - and his side can’t wait to be back at the Riverside on Tuesday.
Our home form has been the backbone of a recent resurgence, one that Woodgate will be keen to keep going under the lights at the Riverside.
Boro are unbeaten on our turf since mid-October, no fewer than eight fixtures.
The target will be another win on home soil against Pep Clotet’s Birmingham City.
