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.
