Aston Villa v Middlesbrough

Aston Villa v Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough are making an immediate return to Aston Villa in the EFL third round this evening (kick-off 7.45pm).

The two sides shared a scoreless draw only a week ago in a fixture that witnessed each being reduced to ten-men.

Former Villa winger Adama Traore serves the second of his three-match ban following his dismissal, while midfielder Adam Clayton is also suspended after collecting a fifth booking of the season in the weekend victory against Queens Park Rangers.

Newcomer Martin Braithwaite is back in training having missed out with a hamstring injury since the opening day of the campaign, but fellow striker Rudy Gestede [thigh] remains sidelined.

Teenager Keinan Davis should be available for the hosts after suffering from cramp in the 3-0 victory at Barnsley.

Gabby Agbonlahor, Micah Richards, Tommy Elphick, Ross McCormack, Ritchie De Laet and Mark Bunn are also in contention despite being left out at Oakwell.
