The Middlesbrough predicted line-up to face Stoke City - with three changes from Swansea defeat

Middlesbrough will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they face Stoke City at the Riverside this weekend – and manager Neil Warnock has some big decisions to make.

Boro were beaten 2-1 at Swansea last weekend after a controversial late penalty was awarded to the hosts in stoppage-time and converted by Andre Ayew.

The result left Neil Warnock’s side sitting ninth in the Championship table and eight points off the play-off places.

Stoke are also outsiders to finish in the top six after winning just one of their last four games and are just two points behind Boro.

Michael O'Neill’s side have played with a back four and a back three in recent weeks so Boro may have to be flexible in terms of their formation.

In their last few matches, Warnock’s substitutes have made an impact off the bench to stake their claims.

Here’s who we think could start against the Potters.
