Middlesbrough vs Stoke City LIVE
Hello and welcome to our live blog coverage of Middlesbrough vs Stoke City from the Riverside. It could be a huge night for Michael Carrick's side with the chance to go within one poiint of second-placed Sheffield United with a home win tonight.
Boro have been in excellent form, and Saturday's victory over Swansea, coupled with the Blades' home defeat to Luton Town, means the push for an automatic place is still very much alive. Paul Heckingbottom's Sheffield United play Sunderland at the Stadium of Light tomorrow, so this is a real chance to continue to turn up the heat.
Dael Fry and Matt Crooks are both 'touch-and-go' for tonight's game, while Stoke have doubts over Phil Jagielka and Ben Wilmott, while Nick Powell is definitely out. Former Boro target Dwight Gayle could lead the line for the visitors.
Craig Johns is at the Riverside tonight to bring you all the action as it happens, plus the post-match reaction and analysis.
