Match Pack

Middlesbrough played Brentford four times last season and won each game, racking up an aggregate score of 10-1. Aitor Karanka’s men have already played Brentford this season too, running out 3-1 victors at the Riverside.

Boro’s impressive march to the title continues after dispatching Derby 2-0 and extending the shut-out to approx. 726 minutes.

After Brentford’s own play-off heartache last season, they have started the 2015/16 season brightly, despite managerial changes and losing last season’s star man Andre Gray.

Brentford find themselves in 10th place with their last loss at home coming at the hands of Hull City on Tuesday 3rd November. Under new manager Dean Smith, Brentford continue to challenge for the play-offs and have won 3 of their last 5 home games. (D1 L1.)

Watch Boro vs. Derby with MSS

Potentially the biggest game of the season and MSS have arranged a screening in the Sheephaven Bay.

ADOMAH-DERBY

A win could see us climb four points clear at the top of the league – with a game in in hand. So join MSS as we look to take on fellow rivals Derby County on Saturday afternoon.

Kick off is at 3pm – January 2nd 2016.

Mini Match Pack
Boro have not conceded a home league goal since Brentford on Tuesday 15th September. It took an 88th minute equaliser to rescue a point for Derby in this fixture earlier this year.

Paul Clement’s men are undergoing a good run of form that saw them brielfly displace Boro at the Championship summit on Boxing Day. However they required another late goal to draw at Elland Road

Like all MSS events, this screening is open to all Boro supporters and we hope to see you there.

RSVP for the event on Facebook here.

Mini Match Pack
Boro will come into the game fresher than Sheffield Wednesday, who beat Birmingham City on Boxing Day. The Owls have climbed up the league and sit in seventh place after winning their last two games – scoring seven goals in the process.

Boro won the reverse fixture earlier this season 3-1 – goals coming from Adam Reach, Diego Fabrini and Cristhian Stuani.

Like all MSS events, this screening is open to all Boro supporters and we hope to see you there.
