Adam Forshaw- Returns to face old side Brentford. Dimi Konstantopoulos- 6 clean sheets in the last 7 League games.

Brentford and Middlesbrough meet at Griffin Park in an encounter which sees 3rd place and 5th go head to head live on Sky Sports One.

Brentford should play the same team that beat Norwich last week as Toumani Diagouraga and James Tarkowski seem to have got over their injuries. The only injury worries remain Lewis Macleod, Alan Judge, Alan McCormack and Scott Hogan.

Middlesbrough may give a debut to Adam Forshaw after the former Brentford man signed for The Boro from Wigan earlier this week. Aitor Karanka is likely to be without Chelsea loanee Tomas Kalas who was also out of Boro's 2-0 victory against Manchester City in The FA Cup with an ankle injury. Ryan Fredericks is also going to miss this one with an ankle injury whilst Emilio Nsue and Equatorial Guinea who are away in the African Cup of Nations. Daniel Ayala is also missing through suspension.

Overall, this will be a tight encounter but Brentford will be seeking revenge following a 4-0 thrashing last time out at The Riverside Satdium, I believe that this match will end in a draw.

Predicted Line-ups:
Brentford- Button, Odubajo, Dean, Tarkowski, Bidwell, Diagouraga, Douglas, Pritchard, Jota, Dallas, Gray
Middlesbrough- Konstantopoulos, Whitehead, Gibson, Woodgate, Friend, Clayton, Leadbitter, Reach, Bamford, Tomlin, Kike

From what I saw last time we were better in possession and had more about us, but Boro were just clinical and tore us apart whenever they went forward. Norwich done similar to us at that time of the season too, I think we can get a win.
