Graeme Lee's side take on Burnley at Bishop Auckland (2pm) following a comfortable win against Sunderland earlier this week.

Isaac Fletcher bagged a hat-trick in a 6-0 mauling of the Black Cats with Rumarn Burrell also bagging a brace.

The Clarets arrive at Heritage Park rooted to the bottom of the table, along with Sunderland Stoke, who Boro have already beaten so far this season.

The game kicks off at 2pm and is being played behind closed doors.
