Boro take on Brighton on Saturday 7th May, 2016, with kickoff at 12:30. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.

It is frankly verging on the ridiculous that the schedulers, in all their wisdom, could have set things up to have second in the table facing third on the final day of the regular season. Whichever team wins here, assuming one does, will enjoy a spot in the Premier League next term without further ado, while the losers will have to face the playoffs.

A draw is in favour of Boro, so you may get the impression they are playing with more to lose, and if that is the case it will only hurt their chances.
