Confirmed: Derby County v Middlesbrough line-ups

Here are the teams as Derby County take on Middlesbrough this evening.

Derby County will be looking for their first win under manager Paul Clement this evening though it won’t be easy with Middlesbrough as the visitors.

The Rams have endured a challenging start to the campaign and seem to be striving for a perfect performance under their new manager.

They simply need to make the most of their home advantage this evening and putting three points on the board which will give the side momentum and get them moving in the right direction.

Middlesbrough have made a good start to the season as they look to make the most of the momentum, which has been carried forward from nearly being promoted last year.

A win for the away team could put them top of the table by the end of the evening if other results go their way.

Aitor Karanka will be very determined for his team to get into a good early position and then defend it for their lives, with the importance of getting promoted into the Premier League having never been greater.
