Having failed to win either of their final two fixtures before the international break, there was a little bit of pressure on Fulham as they prepared to make the shortest of trips to London rivals Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
However, a goal in each half from Aleksandar Mitrovic ensured that the Cottagers collected their 24th Championship victory of the campaign, moving them ever closer to an immediate return to the Premier League.
Marco Silva will insist that his team need to take one match at a time but with the teams in third position and lower struggling for consistency, two more wins may be enough to get over the line.
Despite their indifferent form, Fulham make the long trip to the Riverside Stadium with the best away record in the division, collecting 40 points from their 19 fixtures on the road.
Remarkably, this will be the Cottagers’ fifth away fixture in succession, and they have the opportunity to end a testing run with 10 points from a possible 15.
Wilder could decide to stick with the Middlesbrough XI which started the demolition of Peterborough at the weekend.
Even if Neil Taylor recovers from injury, Marc Bola is expected to keep his spot at left wing-back, with the only alteration realistically coming in attack.
Duncan Watmore and Andraz Sporar may potentially come back into the team ahead of Brighton & Hove Albion loanee Aaron Connolly.
Silva is likely to hand a recall to Antonee Robinson, who was rested at the weekend after representing USA in World Cup qualifying.
