West Bromwich Albion v Middlesbrough

About this programme

West Bromwich Albion v Middlesbrough (Kick-off 5.15pm). The Hawthorns provides the setting for this evening's Championship clash between two former Premier League clubs. The Baggies look on course for a return to the top flight and can edge a step closer by defeating Boro for the second time this season. A resplendent performance saw them prevail 5-0 at the Riverside in September, in what was a top-of-the-table clash at the time, with Chris Brunt on the scoresheet twice. The Teessiders have since fallen off the pace and have only slim hopes of a play-off place left to challenge for over the closing weeks of the campaign.
