Its the big one. David Booth Jersey . Middlesbrough face Brighton on the final day of the Championship season for a place in the Premier League - and unrivalled riches. The victor on Saturday will rub shoulders with the likes of Pep Guardiolas Manchester City next term but the biggest ever financial prize in football is also at stake, say financial analysts.Promotion to the Premier League for either club will see an uplift in revenue of at least £170m, according to Deloittes Sports Business Group, and at least £290m if they survive their first season. The experts also predict an increase in revenue for 2016/17 could propel Middlesbrough or Brighton into the worlds top 30 revenue-generating clubs. The winner of the match between Middlesbrough or Brighton could earn in the region of £170m by being promoted to the Premier League It doesnt get much closer than two glory-chasing sides level on points going into the final afternoon but who will prevail in front of the Sky Sports cameras? From the form book to the expert view, heres all you need to know...Whats the deal? Championship top three Team P GD Pts 1. Burnley 45 34 90 2. Middlesbrough 45 32 88 3. Brighton 45 30 88 Its pretty simple. Three points would secure promotion to the top flight alongside Burnley and the winner could still seal the title.If the Clarets lose to already-relegated Charlton at The Valley, a winner at the Riverside would see that side promoted as champions with 91 points to Burnleys 90. If Sean Dyches men win in south London, though, they will take home the silverware. Boros hopes were dealt a blow at Birmingham last weekend A draw would be enough for Middlesbrough as they have a superior goal difference.Bu it isnt all doom and gloom for the losing side. They would face sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday in the play-offs - with home advantage in the second leg - and could still earn promotion to the Premier League.Whos in form?Both sides are in decent form, but missed out on the chance to take maximum points last weekend. Middlesbrough drew with Birmingham on Friday, while James Wilsons late strike earned Brighton a point against play-off contenders Derby on Monday. Highlights from Brightons 1-1 draw with Derby in the Sky Bet Championship But they are both still on unbeaten runs. Boro have not lost in nine but have drawn the last three - including a 1-1 result against Burnley. The Seagulls made history at the start of the season when they went on a run of 21 games without loss - but were stopped in their tracks with a 3-0 home defeat to Middlesbrough just before Christmas. Since a 4-1 loss to Cardiff at the end of February, Brighton are now unbeaten in their last 13 Championship encounters, winning five of the last six. Aitor Karanka believes his side are even better than last season Any injuries to worry about?Karanka is unsure over the fitness of defender George Friend, who suffered a hamstring injury at Turf Moor last month.Karanka confirmed the clubs medical staff will assess Friend on Saturday morning, but does not anticipate doubts over other players.Ritchie de Laet stands by to step into the defence for Boro should Friend fail to make the cut. Middlesbroughs George Friend could be missing on Saturday Brighton will be missing defender Lewis Dunk, who starts a two-match ban following his red card against Derby on Monday.That means a first appearance since January for club captain Gordon Greer alongside Connor Goldson at centre-half.Any omens from the stats?Boro have won three of their last four league encounters with the Seagulls (D1).Brighton have not conceded a goal in any of their last three trips to the Riverside, winning two (D1). Brighton manager Chris Hughton has urged his squad to use the underdog tag to their advantage Boro have kept more clean sheets in league competition than any other team in the top four tiers this season (22).Tomer Hemeds 17 goals have won Brighton 16 points this season; only Andre Grays goals (22 points won) have been more valuable.Brighton have scored the first goal in more matches than any other team this season (28); with Chris Hughtons men avoiding defeat in all of those games (W21 D7).Are the managers confident? Seagulls boss Chris Hughton is backing his side to do the business and was in bullish mood following Mondays draw with the Rams.We will be going there with a winning mentality and we need to show enough quality, he said. Theres no doubt Middlesbrough will be the favourites and theyll be pleased with our result, but weve given ourselves every chance. Brighton midfielder Steve Sidwell is confident Brighton can beat Middlesbrough We have been good away from home for the majority of the season and we havent lost today. It is a big task but not one that is impossible.Boro boss Aitor Karanka is hoping home advantage pays dividends and believes his side are better than the one that suffered an agonising play-off final defeat last season. We have this game at home in front of our support and I am really positive, he told the Gazette.We have it in our hands. We have the final at our own stadium and we are better than we were last season. Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship clash between Birmingham and Middlesbrough It will be a really tough game, a really difficult 95 minutes. But we ready. I am ready, the club is ready, the fans are ready, and especially the players are ready.It will be tough but I think if I had to choose Brightons situation or ours I would choose ours, definitely.Whats the expert verdict? Sky Sports Football League expert Ian Holloway will be at the Riverside and describes the showdown as a double final.I cant believe Im fortunate enough to go. I can honestly tell you I dont know which way its going to go, he said. I dont know whos going to handle the pressure of it that well. I urge the Middlesbrough supporters to get right behind your team. I know they want it really badly and its been a long time since they dropped out of it [the Premier League]. Ian Holloway admits he has no idea whether it will be Middlesbrough or Brighton who will grab the final automatic promotion spot Chris Hughton and his Brighton team know theyve got to win. Sometimes worrying about a draw - it stops you going for broke so sometimes its better to know what youve got to do.The game will be won or lost in the nerves and who can play the occasion. Who can go through the process rather than be caught up in the emotion of the game. Its like a tug of war and its a one off - like a double final for the neutrals this year.Middlesbrough have got the chance to put the play-off final from last season behind them. Will that carry into this year? I hope not, but truthfully I cant wait to see and the atmosphere will be something else and I just know someones going to be disappointed. Craig Hignett believes Middlesbrough will beat Brighton If its Brighton, they will be more than delighted with their season anyway and I think theyll fancy their chances with the way their team is playing. If its Middlesbrough who miss out, Im sure that it would be harder for them because of last season. I feel for whoever doesnt do it, but theyve all had great seasons and I cant wait to see how it unfolds.Who do you think will be taking the final automatic promotion spot to the Premier League?

CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox had a power surge on Saturday night. But the offensive production in the 6-5 win over the Kansas City Royals has been a rarity this season, and that was evident after the game when the team announced that hitting coach Jeff Manto had been fired. The White Sox avoided 100 losses for the season with the win, but it wasnt enough to save Mantos job. "Obviously, this has been a very disappointing season and one of the main areas of disappointment has been our offensive performance," general manager Rick Hahn said. "Were at the bottom of several important categories, most importantly runs scored, walks and on-base percentage. Its our belief that the best way to continue to address some of those issues is to get a new voice in here to work with our hitters. "We had a conversation with Jeff and we allowed him to choose whether he finished the season and had this announced on Monday. Jeff decided it was best for him to leave at the start of tonights game." Manager Robin Ventura said he fought for Manto to stay, but the decision to make the change wasnt his. "As bad as this season has been, I dont want anyone to point the finger at him," Ventura said of Manto. "Having played and having the same thing as a player, theres responsibility all over the place." The White Sox were a more potent offence on Saturday. Adam Dunn and Conor Gillapie each hit two-run shots and Marcus Semien and Jordan Danks each added solo homers. "Looking at last year, we hit a lot of home runs," Ventura said. "I think at periods we won more games because we got runs faster. Tonight was one of those nights. It was instant, for both teams. There was no manufacturing of runs. Last year, we had it. This year, we didnt have it as much." It was an unseasonably warm night and the ball was flying out as if it was the middle of summer. All 11 runs came via the home run. The White Sox opened the scoring with back-to-back homers from Semien and Danks in the bottom of the second inning for a 2-0 lead. Its the fourth time this season the White Sox have hit back-to-back homers. Semien has only been with the White Sox a short time, but has a long history with Manto. "I learned a lot from him," Semien said. "Even when I was in the minoor leagues, he was our co-ordinator my first year. Luke Witkowski Jersey. He taught me a lot about what to look for, what to do in certain situations. Hes helped me become a smarter player." The advantage grew to 4-0 when Dunn smashed a two-run shot in the third. It was Dunns 34th homer on the season. Those homers were surrendered by Royals starter Yordano Ventura (0-1), who allowed four runs and six hits in four innings. White Sox starter Erik Johnson (3-2) didnt allow a hit through the first 4 1-3 innings. Mike Moustakas then homered to right field with one out in the fifth inning. Then in the top of the sixth, Billy Butler hit a two-run shot to make it 4-3. "This park is usually a good park to hit in if you get the ball in the air," Butler said. "Definitely in the (A.L.) Central its the best park to hit in. You hit the ball in the air and you hit it good, its going out." The home runs continued in the bottom of the seventh when Gillaspie smacked the first pitch from left-handed reliever Tim Collins just over the right-field fence for a two-run homer and a 6-3 cushion. Salvador Perez got the runs right back with a two-run shot in the eighth. White Sox closer Addison Reed worked a scoreless ninth for his 40th save. NOTES: Assistant hitting coach Harold Baines will handle Mantos job in Sundays season finale. Manto worked two years as Chicagos hitting coach. ... A day later, there was still a buzz about the unusual catch Royals left-fielder Alex Gordon made Friday on a fly ball by Alexei Ramirez. Gordon ran back and climbed the fence. But then he realized the ball wasnt going that far, so he jumped down and made a casual backhand catch. Many in the ballpark thought the ball was gone, including the person who sets off the fireworks celebrating every White Sox homer. "I wasnt fooled by that," Chicago manager Robin Ventura said. "I wasnt in charge of the fireworks. Believe it or not, we dont have a button controlling that in (the dugout)." ... Barring a last-second collapse of epic proportions, the Royals, who led the AL with a 2.55 bullpen ERA entering Saturday, will set a franchise mark. The previous low in a full season was 2.92 in 1976. . The series, and the season, wraps up Sunday with White Sox LHP Jose Quintana (9-6) facing LHP Bruce Chen (8-4).
