“Middlesbrough supporters travelling to Swansea for Wednesday night’s Capital One Cup clash will have their journey paid for by the competition sponsors – as a reward for being drawn away from home an incredible 12 consecutive times,” says The Daily Mail. Boro fans will be traveling a round-trip of 656 miles from their city to Swansea.
If Tony Mowbray’s Boro side can get a win in Wales tonight, the north east club will find itself in the semi-final of the League Cup against either Aston Villa, Bradford City or the winner of Chelsea-Leeds. If they can avoid Chelsea-Leeds, they could have a great chance of going all the way to the final.
For Swansea, today’s match represents an equally golden opportunity of getting closer to winning some silverware this season. The semi-final draw will occur after tonight’s game.
For viewers in the United States, the game isn’t being shown live on television. It’s being shown on delay at 6pm ET instead on beIN SPORT. But you should be able to listen to a live radio commentary via the talksport.com website (free registration required).
