Neil Warnock’s side are currently mid-table in the Championship after Saturday’s win over Peterborough United in front of 19,556 fans and Boro are back in action on Teesside in midweek with the visit of Barnsley.
Two thirds of Boro’s points accumulated this season have come at the Riverside showing the importance of the sizeable backing they receive from supporters.
But just how do Boro’s attendance figures shape up against the rest of their Championship rivals? With a number of big clubs in the division, here at The Mail we have decided to take a look at the average attendance figures for each of the 24 clubs in the Championship and rank them here.
Are there any of these attendance figures which surprise you?
