The last time the two sides faced each other, back in March, Neil Warnock's side secured a hard-fought victory away from home, with Grant Hall and George Saville getting on the score sheet.

Meanwhile, midfielder Sam Morsy has opened up on his decision to leave Boro to join League One side Ipswich Town.

The Egypt international said: “I had no intention of leaving Middlesbrough. Even when I was told they were signing a midfielder I was happy to fight for my place but I think it was made clear from upstairs that they wanted to sell me.

“Initially I said that’s fine if the club wants to sell me but I said I’m staying put. I’d settled in the area, enjoyed my team-mates, enjoyed the coaching staff, it was a great atmosphere and I wanted to stay.”

He continued: “I think when it became apparent I wouldn’t have a fair shot, that’s when I had to look elsewhere.

“It was late on the last day and I knew the manager at Ipswich and had told him earlier in the window there was no interest in leaving the club.

“Usually when I’m at a club I’m fully committed, fully committed to the cause and excited for the season.”
