Marcus Tavernier suprised fans at our Virtual Concourse ahead of the Bristol City game when he popped in for a short Q&A.

Our first Virtual Concourse, brought to you by Pukka Pies, was an instant hi with the fans who attended.

Tav joined former referee and ardent Boro fan Jeff Winter as part of a pre-match chat about the game ahead and the topical issues of the footballing week so far. 

Hosted by Gordon Cox, who will be joined each week by a special guest, the Virtual Concourse is a chance to mingle with other fans, talk about tactics and team news, give your thoughts and score predictions, and generally enjoy the excitement and anticipation that only matchdays can bring.

Pukka Pies, who are sponsoring the Virtual Concourse, have also pledged to make one participating supporter a lucky winner - a season’s worth of Pukka Pies with one free pie every home matchday once we can welcome you back home to the Riverside.
