The Eagles come into this game as part of a five-team play-off chasing pack. Their fate is in their own hands, as a victory at Heritage Park will secure their play-off spot.
The squad has two changes from the side that emerged 3-2 winners against Boro four days earlier. Defenders Jude Russell and Lewis Hobbs come in for first-teamers Nathaniel Clyne and James Tomkins.
Leading goalscorer Sion Spence starts, whilst captain Jake O’Brien continues at the heart of the defence.
The game kicks off at 13:00 BST and will be available to stream live, for free, on Middlesbrough’s official YouTube channel.
