Boro Hit By Another Crisis!

O'Neil picked up a hamstring tear in training on Friday which may sideline him for a few weeks, while Bates is suspended.

Southgate: "We are a bit short of personnel in midfield but we'll have a look at it during the week and come up with the answers."

Southgate could be tempted to play Tuncay in the middle, while Mohamed Shawky and Josh Walker are available.

Southgate has further problems because skipper Emanuel Pogatetz is having treatment for a knee injury.
