Boro stand a very slim chance of making it into the top six, but they are on an abysmal run of form that has seen five defeats and a draw from their last six games.
Brighton have missed a couple of chances in recent games to move above Nottingham Forest and with only one win from six they will need to improve sooner rather than later.
Possible starting lineups
Boro: Steele; Hoyte, Williams, Woodgate, Halliday; Ameobi, Leadbitter, McEachran, Haroun, Carayol; Emnes
Brighton: Kuszczak; Calderon, Greer, Upson, Bridge; Bridcutt, Hammon, Lopez; Orlandi, LuaLua; Ulloa
Sports Mole says: 0-1
