Woodgate was among the Teessiders on the terraces when Tony Mowbray was leading 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.

Come Saturday, the two will be up against each other in the dugouts at the Riverside Stadium.

There’s a strong Teesside feel to this fixture - former Boro players including Stewart Downing, Richie Smallwood, Harry Chapman and Danny Graham could make a Rovers return, while our own Academy lads continue to play a prominent part in the first team set-up.
