Now is a good time to relocate that goal-scoring form. - Charlie Crowhurst
The fight for the playoffs is very tight, and it is win or go home for these two sides today. Boro are a long shot, and a loss mathematically eliminates them. Bolton are in better shape, but still need help elsewhere.

Dougie Freedman has made the exact changes we talked about in yesterday's preview for Bolton. Sam Ricketts takes over at right back. The 4-4-2 formation returns, with Forward Craig Davies coming in for midfielder Josh Vela, and forward Marvin Sordell replacing injury victim David Ngog. Boro have come out with a lot of firepower in the starting XI and on the bench. They want to score. What do you think Readers, can the Whites keep another home clean sheet?
