Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray hopes their table-topping victory over Sheffield Wednesday inspires the people of Teesside to pack out the Riverside on a regular basis.

Chairman Steve Gibson took the bold step of halving ticket prices for the match, and the 28,229 supporters who attended were rewarded with a rousing 3-1 win that lifted Boro into top spot.

Mowbray said: "It was great to have such a big crowd there for us. A big thank you to all the supporters who came tonight, and thanks to the chairman who put the deal together. That's what I know the Riverside as. We had 11 years in the Premier League with the stadium full."
