Gareth Southgate is facing up to a defensive crisis.

David Wheater is suspended after his sending-off at Hull last weekend, while
Justin Hoyte and Andrew Taylor are both doubts with knee injuries.

Robert Huth (foot) and Chris Riggott (hamstring) have returned to training, but Tony McMahon, Seb Hines, Matthew Bates and Rhys Williams could come into contention if they are not ready.

Midfielder Gary O'Neil and striker Mido (both hamstring) will miss out once again, but Mohamed Shawky could be involved for the first time since he suffered a thigh injury in October.

BORO (from): Turnbull, Jones, Hoyte, McMahon, Taylor, Grounds, Pogatetz, Huth, Bates, Hines, Williams, Aliadiere, Arca, Walker, Digard, Downing, Johnson, Emnes, Tuncay, Alves.
