Two of the favourites for promotion to the Premier League meet on Friday evening as Middlesbrough host West Brom.
Middlesbrough have made a solid start to the campaign, winning three of their opening four matches.
They eased to a 2-0 win away at Bristol City on the weekend, with Martin Braithwaite scoring the opener.
West Brom are starting to find their feet in the Championship and embarrassed Queens Park Rangers last time out.
Matthew Phillips and Jay Rodriguez scored twice as they hit Steve McClaren’s side for seven!
Both meetings in the 2016-17 Premier League campaign finished level, including a 1-1 at the Riverside.
West Brom are unbeaten in six matches against Middlesbrough, a run stretching back to 2007.
Last five league meetings (Premier League unless stated)
Middlesbrough 1 West Brom 1 – 31/01/17
West Brom 0 Middlesbrough 0 – 28/08/16
West Brom 2 Middlesbrough 0 (Championship) – 17/04/10
Middlesbrough 0 West Brom 5 (Championship) – 19/09/09
West Brom 3 Middlesbrough 0 – 17/01/09
Daniel Ayala is close to returning to full fitness for the hosts, however Daniel Fry could still be favoured.
Paddy McNair could earn a start here following his summer move from Sunderland.
Following their 7-1 weekend win, West Brom are unlikely to make changes to the team.
The Baggies have no injury concerns going into the game, however Craig Dawson could continue to miss out after failing to secure a move to the Premier League.
