Middlesbrough have their penultimate league fixture of the regular season knowing that victory against promotion rivals Millwall will finally confirm their place in the play-offs.

Boro are currently on 72 points and have a three-point advantage over their visitors, who are sitting just outside the top six.

Meanwhile, the best of the rest, Brentford at present, are only capable of reaching a maximum points tally of 74.

Striker Patrick Bamford is back in contention for the home side after suffering a head injury during their recent triumph over Bristol City.

Fellow marksman Rudy Gestede remains out for the rest of the season.

Australian international Tim Cahill is serving a three-match ban for their opponents for violent conduct following an elbow on Fulham’s Ryan Fredericks.

The visitors will be seeking an immediate reaction having crashed 3-0 at home to their London neighbours last time out.
