Diehard Boro fan Dael Fry is looking forward to an 'extra special' game on Sunday, which as a proud Teessider he definitely regards as a proper derby.
FIRST SOL GAME
“Do you know what, I’ve never played there [Stadium of Light] in my career, I’m excited to go there."
"I’ve heard the atmosphere is really good and I’m sure our away supporters will be excellent on the day. I’m really looking forward to that. They’re the games you want to play in your career - a big derby for us. We haven’t been there for quite a while now, so I’m looking forward to it. We want to go there and play our football and try and play in the right way and hopefully we can go there and get the win."
"It is that little bit extra special for me because I’m from Middlesbrough and know what it means to the fans and the club. They’re right next to us in the table as well, so if we can go there and get the three points, it will be absolutely amazing.”
"We knew going in that a win last weekend would take us up to fourth, so it was nice to get that because the table is so tight at the minute. Hopefully we can start to pull away a little bit in the weeks ahead."
