Sheffield Wednesday v Middlesbrough

Sheffield Wednesday v Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough are visiting Sheffield Wednesday for their pre-Christmas fixture on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3.00pm).

The Teessiders currently have a five-point gap to make up on their weekend opponents' city rivals Sheffield United in order to get back into the play-offs.

Former Aston Villa striker Rudy Gestede has come off the bench in their latest three outings and is again in contention for a first start since August.

Midfielders Adam Clayton and Marvin Johnson are similarly challenging for inclusion.

Wednesday have midfielder Sam Hutchinson back in their starting line-up having been out for a couple of months with knee trouble.

But goalkeeper Keiren Westwood [groin] remains unavailable for selection, therefore Joe Wildsmith continues, while defender Morgan Fox is suspended after being sent-off against leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers last week.

Striker Steven Fletcher also hopes to make a comeback over the festive programme.
