Boro looking for an upset

Middlesbrough travel to in-form Bolton Wanderers after claiming their first win in eight games in midweek.

The visitors are without midfielder Grant Leadbitter as he completes a two-game suspension while left-back George Friend is still out with a hamstring problem. But fellow defender Jonathan Woodgate (muscle tightening) should return after sitting out the midweek victory against Nottingham Forest.

Otherwise, forward Emmanuel Ledesma is currently struggling with an ankle injury and striker Lukas Jutkiewicz (knee) also remains a concern.

"They're on a decent run and have come from nowhere to get in the play-off positions," manager Tony Mowbray told Boro's official website. "They've got some very good players and David Wheater, who left here for a big fee, can't even get into their team at the moment after he has returned from injury.

"Their confidence will be high and their supporters will have their spirits up," he warned. "But we'll go there and see if we can put a pin in their bubble."

Bolton have won their last seven homes games but are without striker David Ngog after a dislocated shoulder ruled him out for the rest of the season.

The former Liverpool forward therefore joins the likes of Jay Spearing, Keith Andrews, Tyrone Mears and Mark Davies in the treatment room.
