FOOTBALL: A rather excited-sounding Middlesbrough FC press release has announced that 17,500 tickets have been sold for Friday night's home game against Sheffield Wednesday, with a gate of more than 20,000 expected for the npower Championship fixture.

“This offer has been very, very well received by our fans and we’re delighted the team are going to be backed by such a loud and proud red army,” said head of supporter services Anthony Emmerson. “The only other league game that got over 20,000 in 2012 was 21,301 against Leeds United in March.

“The challenge is to see if we can beat that the figure and tap into the feelgood factor that’s flowing through every Boro fan after the team’s fantastic run.”

That should set a few minds at rest...
