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.

Middlesbrough twice came from behind to earn themselves a point at Barnsley after goals from Martin Braithwaite and Britt Assombalonga.

A frantic start to the game witnessed three changes of scoreline inside ten minutes, with Ashley Fletcher responsible for an own-goal against his former club and Cameron McGeehan netting on his home debut.

Summer recruit Braithwaite managed to respond in between those and Boro's record signing Assombalonga later equalised on the hour.
