Middlesbrough haven't had the best of starts to their season, losing 1-2 at home to Leicester last Saturday and then 1-2 at home to Accrington Stanley in the Capital One Cup. Manager Tony Mowbray admits that it will be a tough match at The Valley tomorrow.
Boro will be boosted by the arrival of Ghana international Albert Adomah from Bristol City for a fee of around £1m. Mowbray sees him as a wide creative player rather than the goal scorer they are still searching for.
Last season 'Boro started strongly and topped the table in November, but slumped in the New Year, eventually finishing 16th. Four Four Two forecasts a 13th place finish this year.
Johnnie Jackson is expected to the back from injury for the Addicks. Danny Green may replaced the suspended Bradley Pritchard. Simon Church may be favoured up front over Marin Sordell who has not impressed so far.
Possible line up: Hamer; Solly, Morrison, Dervite, Wiggins; Green, Jackson, Gower, Harriott; Kermogrant, Church.
