Our Under-23s are aiming to close the gap on the top two when Manchester United arrive at the Riverside on Monday (7pm).
Man United are five points ahead of Boro and are second in the table, behind pace setters West Ham United, who have won nine of their opening 10 games.
Boro have tasted defeat just twice in the league this season and go into the first Riverside clash of the season on the back of an unbeaten October.
A late equaliser denied Graeme Lee’s side all three points at Newcastle last week, and the lead coach and his assistant Danny Schofield will be looking for a response against Man United.
The Boro side is likely to include a number of the first team squad with the likes of Hayden Coulson, Marc Bola, Connor Malley, Ben Liddle and Stephen Walker expected to feature.
Admission is free to Season Card Holders and is priced at £3 for everyone else.
The game will also be shown live here and on our official YouTube channel.
