Middlesbrough take on Sheffield Wednesday on Friday 9th November, 2012, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.
Two of the best-supported teams outside the Premiership are under the Friday night lights for your entertainment this week, and I think there could be a good degree of fun for those who turn up to the Riverside. Wednesday have long been out of the top league, but finally both sides are in the ante-room to the Premier League and can almost smell the big time.
In real terms it is the home side that are currently closer to that dream, sitting second in the league, and I’m sure Boro fans will want a win to kick their weekend off.
