MOWBRAY HAS NO NEW WORRIES

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray has no fresh injury problems as his side attempts to break a 101-year-old club record.
Should Boro win or draw against Millwall at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday, they will have enjoyed an 11-game unbeaten start to the league season, bettering the 10 games the Teessiders managed in 1910.
Defender Seb Hines has returned to training after a knee injury but is likely to make the bench at best with Boro having not conceded a goal in their last five games.
Goalkeeper Jason Steele could also be included in the squad for the first time this season after playing 75 minutes for the reserves following his recovering from a wrist fracture, but loan signing Carl Ikeme is likely to continue.
Jonathan Franks remains on the sidelines after undergoing surgery to repair a dislocated shoulder and is not expected to return until early December.
Patrick Agyemang is in line to make his Millwall debut for the away fixture.
The striker has agreed a one-month loan deal from QPR and is set to be pitched straight in by manager Kenny Jackett, whose shot-shy side have scored just once in their last seven matches.
Jackett’s attacking options are further boosted by the return of Darius Henderson from a calf problem and Josh McQuoid, who has been sidelined through illness.
But fellow forward John Marquis, who has been playing despite a hernia problem, is suspended.
Midfielder Therry Racon played for the reserves in midweek after two months out with an ankle injury but Jackett will not risk him for another week or two.
Full-back Jordan Stewart is a doubt after he limped out of the reserve game.
