Middlesbrough hope for big turn-out against Huddersfield Town on Tuesday

MIDDLESBROUGH are hoping for bumper backing against Town on Tuesday.

MIDDLESBROUGH are hoping for bumper backing against Huddersfield Town on Tuesday.

They had 28,229 for their last home game, the 3-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday, after slashing ticket prices.

And the North-East side who are third in the standings have said any fan buying a ticket for today’s game against Bristol City will get free admission against Town.

Boss Tony Mowbray said: “It’s hugely encouraging to see that level of support.”

It’s Town’s first visit to Middlesbrough since 1997-98, when they went down 3-0 in a Division I (now Championship) clash.

In their only other appearance at the Riverside Stadium, in the Coca-Cola Cup third round the season before, Town were beaten 5-1.
