 Boro seek capital gains

Third-placed Middlesbrough journey to the capital this weekend to take on lowly Charlton Athletic at The Valley.

Boro could be boosted by the welcome return of striker Lukas Jutkiewicz following a knee injury. Midfielder Kevin Thomson (calf) and young forward Luke Williams (hip) are similarly back training after making recoveries.

But the visitors were expected to still be without Jonathan Woodgate (thigh) and Marvin Emnes (hamstring,) while Seb Hines (knee/groin) and Ishmael Miller (hamstring) require late checks.

Former Stoke City striker Ricardo Fuller (hamstring) is definitely unavailable.
