Halford and Millers look to kick on
Halford was part of the team which pulled off one of the Championship's shocks of the day by ending Sheffield Wednesday's six-month unbeaten home league record on Saturday.
And while second-top Boro are likely to be an even tougher proposition, the experienced utility man says there are plenty of positives to take into the match.
"I have always said that this league is all about momentum and if you have that then it really counts," he said.
"I was reasonably pleased with my own performance against Sheffield Wednesday and more than happy with the result.
"You can look at it two ways. They had a lot of possession and quite a few chances but never really threatened our goal. We defended for our lives and put a couple of dangerous crosses in. We probably had the better chances to convert into goals but everyone was chuffed."
MK Dons, three points better off, are at Charlton tonight while Boro will go top of the league if they take three points and Burnley fail to win at Fulham.
Kick-off at the AESSEAL New York Stadium is 7.45pm.
