Middlesbrough prepare to entertain West Bromwich Albion at Riverside Stadium on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Boro are clearly on top, having won 27 and lost only 6 of the 42 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Riverside Stadium was less than a year ago, in April 2005, as they swept to an impressive 4-0 win in a Premiership match.
