Kilgallon, who missed the start of the season because of a back problem, has returned to Sunderland for treatment after aggravating the problem in training on Friday.

Tarmo Kink (knee) started the 3-0 defeat at QPR on Saturday but only lasted 55 minutes, while Leroy Lita replaced Kris Boyd 10 minutes later and could be pushing for a start.

Mickael Tavares made his debut after signing on transfer deadline day and should feature at home for the first time, with Strachan possibly making changes to kick-start his side's season.

Boro languish in 20th place in the Championship after winning just once in five games.
