Boro’s Futsal team play host to rivals Leeds on Sunday at Thornaby Pavilion, kick off 1.30pm, in a bid to keep their playoff hopes alive right down to the wire.


It’s another must win game following on from wins against Sheffield and East Coast and if they can extend their run for another 4 games they will be in with a shot of the title playoffs in June.  Leeds are also in a similar position to Middlesbrough and whoever takes the 3 points on Sunday will fancy their chances of breaking into the top two.


The last time these two teams met ended in an embarrassing 10-5 defeat to Middlesbrough, but their recent form has improved, kick started by the memorable 7-6 win over Sheffield.


Once again, the fans are expected to play a part with their loud vocal backing and Damon Shaw is delighted with the support since they came to their first match.


“They’ve seen us win two games now, their support is amazing and as our boys get used to it they are really being inspired.  Everybody who came to the last game will have it forever etched in their memory. To win from 6-2 down with 8 minutes to go, against reigning champions and league leaders isn’t something that goes away,” enthused Shaw.  “We need to keep the momentum up and as long as we come close to second place I’ll be over the moon [after a poor opening half season]. I’m urging anybody who couldn’t make that one to come along so they don’t miss out!”


Doors open early on Sunday with Boro Under-18s taking on Leeds Under-18s in an 11.30am kick off.  The senior sides then kick off at 1.30pm.  Entry is £1 only and there will be a half time crossbar challenge for Cash for Kids. Parking in Thornaby Town Centre is free on Sundays.
