Middlesbrough Riverside Stadium gates

This is how Middlesbrough and Brentford will line up for the Championship playoff clash at the Riverside Stadium this evening…

Middlesbrough will be looking to book their place in the final of the Championship playoff this season at the expense of Brentford.

Aitor Karanka’s side will head into the second leg of the semi-final tie at the Riverside Stadium with a 2-1 lead from the first leg.

A late Fernando Amorebieta goal at Griffin Park saw Boro register a 2-1 victory over the Bees away from home.

Now all Middlesbrough need to do tonight is play out a draw, and they will reach the playoff final and remain in contention of promotion to the Premier League.

Boro are aiming to return to the Premier League for the first time since relegation in 2009, while Brentford will have to beat the Teesside club for the first time since 1964 to reach the final at London's Wembley Stadium.

It promises to be an interesting game at the Riverside Stadium, and this is how Middlesbrough and Brentford will line up:

Middlesbrough XI: Dimi, Whitehead, Ayala, Gibson, Friend, Adomah, Leadbitter, Clayton, Tomlin, Vossen, Kike

Subs: Ripley, Forshaw, Amorebieta, Nsue, Bamford, Reach, Woodgate

Brentford XI: Button; Odubajo, Dean, Tarkowski, Bidwell; Judge, Douglas, Diagouraga, Pritchard; Jota, Gray
