History of the Middlesbrough v Tottenham Hotspur fixture

Middlesbrough prepare to entertain Tottenham Hotspur at Riverside Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Boro are clearly on top, having won 21 and lost only 6 of the 38 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Riverside Stadium was just last season, in March 2004, the Boro carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Premiership match.
