'Ben Gibson: "We have a chance to make history"'

Boro defender Ben Gibson understands the significance of Saturday's Premier League showdown.

Looking ahead to the fixture, Gibson admits that "we’d have snatched your hand off for this chance at the start of the season." "Win your last home game and be promoted? Of course you would take that chance."

"We have a chance to make history by doing what we’ve done all season. Do that and have the best day of our lives."

"This is why I dreamed of playing for Middlesbrough when I was a young lad, to be involved in games like this."

Looking back at the Play-off Final defeat last season, Gibson feels Boro are in a better position. "We’re better equipped for what is a final really," claims Gibson.

"The fans are like me, they live for days like this. Brighton, obviously, are a top class team at this level, but we’re due a win after three draws and this should be some match."

For those who are feeling the nerves ahead of the game, royal vegas online slots may be a nice challenge.
