We all know anything can happen in this division but we are more than capable of the 3 points. Middlesbrough need the 3 points so will probably try and get on the front foot which will suit us just fine. Anything but a win would be disappointing. Hopefully sow will be back and grabban is fit
Worried about this one as he is arguably in his best form all season. He really gets us going forward and is comfortable with having the ball with opponents all around him and picking out passes to our wingers. Obvious replacement is carvalho and hopefully its his time to shine but I think Silva offers us a lot more in terms of getting the ball back in the final 3rd and starting phases of play where carvalho is pretty much a passenger until someone gives him the ball. If sow isn't fit semedo has to start with the stalwart Ben Watson.
Surely he has to play Carvalho if Silva is out? Fingers crossed Sow makes it but suggestions are he is still out so I would play Semedo instead of Yates.
Not confident about this one after their shithouse tactics at our place earlier in the season - I think they will sit back and let us break them down and that is when we have often struggled. More than happy to be proven wrong here but I think we might have to settle for a point.
