Coventry are likely to name the same squad who disposed of Scunthorpe last weekend.

Aidy Boothroyd has no new injury or suspension problems from the side which triumphed 2-0 at Glanford Park.

Midfielder Sammy Clingan (knee) is progressing and could return by the end of December, but central defender Ben Turner (also knee) is looking more towards January before he plays again.

Chris Hussey has joined the Sky Blues' list of long-term absentees - Gary Deegan, Stephen O'Halloran and Isaac Osbourne - having been ruled out for up to three months due to a recurrence of a broken metatarsal picked up during his short loan spell at Crewe.

Middlesbrough captain Gary O'Neil has a chance of returning from a knee injury after training on Thursday.

Midfielder Kevin Thomson also trained but Saturday's game is likely to come too soon for him.

Otherwise, Tony Mowbray has no new injury or suspension concerns as he looks to secure what would be a first win in four games.

Jonathan Franks (herniated disc), Willo Flood (knee), Rhys Williams (pelvis) and Matt Kilgallon (back) remain in the treatment room.
