Paul Merson: This is what will happen when Arsenal take on Middlesbrough

However, Clayton does not believe that Boro are one of the three worst teams in the division and is confident that one positive result will provide the springboard they need to retain their Premier League status.

Gibson has developed in to one of the most promising young defenders in British football since breaking in to the Middlesbrough first team squad having progressed through their youth ranks.

"It's a massive game and we need to win and we need the three points".

He said: "I couldn't be more proud of the group of players, they gave every ounce of energy over 94 minutes".

Leicester won seven of their last nine fixtures during the 2014-15 campaign to remain in the league and Sunderland survived previous year by avoiding defeat in their last six games. You have to keep believing. "And the gap hasn't been getting any bigger although we've now reached a stage where we have to win".

Agnew thought a key point in the game came at 1-1 when Daniel Ayala's close range header was saved by Petr Cech. We need to get a win as soon as possible and change the face of it.

Gibson only signed a new long-term contract last summer but Boro know they'll have no chance of keeping hold of him if they go down while a move could still be on the cards even if the Teeside club manage to avoid the drop.

"As I've just said to them, we'll start to prepare tomorrow and we go to Bournemouth ready".

Boro's task is likely to be made even tougher by their hard run-in, with Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool providing three of their final four opponents this season.
