A WIN against Middlesbrough this afternoon could be enough for Burnley to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League.

The Clarets, who are 11 points clear in second place, would require Derby County to drop points at home to Huddersfield Town to make certain of top flight football today.

Kieran Trippier returns to the side after a hamstring injury, replacing Chris Baird at right back.

It is the only change to the side which beat Barnsley in midweek.

Fit-again Junior Stanislas is named on the bench.

Middlesbrough arrive at Turf Moor in form having won their last three games, but their defence has been hit by injuries and suspension.

BURNLEY: Tom Heaton; Kieran Trippier, Michael Duff, Jason Shackell, Ben Mee; Michael Kightly, Dean Marney, David Jones, Scott Arfield; Ashley Barnes, Danny Ings.

Subs: Alex Cisak, Kevin Long, Keith Treacy, Junior Stanislas, Ross Wallace, David Edgar, Chris Baird.

MIDDLESBROUGH: Dimi Konstantopoulos, Lee Tomlin, Jacob Butterfield, Jonathan Woodgate, Grant Leadbitter, Emanuel Ledesma, Dean Whitehead, Nathaniel Chalobah, Daniel Ayala, Danny Graham, Albert Adomah.

Subs: Jason Steele, Joszef Varga, Luke Williams, Curtis Main, Bryn Morris, David Atkinson, Adam Jackson.
