Middlesbrough manager Jonathan Woodgate still has a number of players sidelined heading into a crucial game against Charlton tomorrow.
Anfernee Dijksteel has been ruled out for three months with a knee injury, while Darren Randolph (thigh), Ryan Shotton (knee) and George Friend (groin) are unavailable for at least another month.
There is some good news, though, with Britt Assombalonga fit enough to play, despite a sore ankle, while Marcus Browne and Rudy Gestede are both back fit. Paddy McNair and Marvin Johnson are suspended.
Middlesbrough’s Predicted XI To Face Charlton:
Pears, Howson, Wood, Ayala, Fry, Bola, Wing, Tavernier, Saville, Fletcher, Assombalonga
Charlton have an even longer injury list than Boro, with the likes of Tomer Hemed, Lewis Page, Sam Field, George Lapslie, Beram Kayal, Josh Cullen and Jonny Williams all currently sidelined.
However, they will have Lyle Taylor and Chuks Aneke back in contention for the trip to the Riverside Stadium.
Charlton’s Predicted XI:
Philips, Matthews, Lockyer, Sarr, Doughty, Pratley, Oshilaja, Morgan, Aneke, Bonne, Taylor
