Chris Wilder will take charge of Boro for the first time on Saturday when Millwall travel to the Riverside Stadium.

The former Sheffield United manager takes over from Neil Warnock with Boro 14th in the Championship table four points outside a play-off spot after a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion last time out.

And while Wilder has been using the international break to assess his squad at all levels, Boro supporters have been eagerly awaiting the chance to see their new manager in action.

But while much of the talk has been about Wilder's preferred systems and style of play when at Bramall Lane, here at The Mail we look at who the new Boro boss may select in his first starting XI at the Riverside this weekend.

With a number of players such as Andraz Sporar and Dael Fry still questionable to return on Saturday we go with a 3-4-1-2 formation.
