'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Two teams on the up meet at the Riverside

After Coventry City secured their Championship status on Good Friday, Middlesbrough did the same with an excellent win away to Hull City on Saturday.

The two teams now meet at the Riverside Stadium on Easter Monday in good spirits thanks to new(ish) managers who have lifted the moods at their respective clubs.

Andy Thorn's impact at the Ricoh Arena has put him in pole position to become the next permanent Sky Blues boss while Tony Mowbray has turned things around on Teesside after Gordon Strachan's nightmare time in charge.

'In the first half we were pretty good,' he said after the win at Hull.

'We came with a game plan and it worked pretty well.

'We went forward well and asked a lot of questions of their defenders in the first half, and (Scott) McDonald took his goals exceptionally well.

'It was a good, professional performance that was driven by Tuesday's less than convincing performance.'
