Middlesbrough vs Coventry lineups

It would be a surprise if Carrick moved away from the 4-2-3-1 formation for his Middlesbrough side as it has worked for the majority of the season.

Carrick’s Coventry counterpart, Mark Robins, is likely to stick to his three-at-the-back formation to try and get an advantage down the wide areas for Coventry.

Below are the predicted lineups for both teams ahead of their Championship playoff match at the Riverside.

Middlesbrough starting 11

Middlesbrough lineup (4-2-3-1): Steffen (GK) — Smith, McNair, Lenihan, Giles — Hackney, Mowatt — Jones, Akpom, McGree — Archer

  • Injured: Clarke, Ramsey, Howson (doubt)
  • Suspended: None

Centre-back Matt Clarke is sidelined for Middlesbrough with a back injury, while midfielder Aaron Ramsey is set to miss a fifth straight game with an ankle problem. Midfielder Jonathan Howson is a doubt as he is close to recovering from a muscle injury.

Coventry starting 11

Coventry lineup (4-3-3): Wilson (GK) — McNally, McFadzean, Doyle — Norton-Cuffy, Eccles, Kelly, Hamer, Bidwell — Gyokeres, Godden

  • Injured: O’Hare, Palmer, Tavares
  • Suspended: None

Attacking mid-Callum O’Hare will miss out for Coventry with a knee injury, and central striker Fabio Tavares joins him on the sideline with a leg problem. Forward Kasey Palmer is still out with a muscle injury.
