Middlesbrough v Sunderland

Middlesbrough turn to FA Cup third round action with a home tie against neighbours Sunderland on Saturday (kick-off 1.00pm).

Manager Tony Pulis has a full squad available for selection, although Brazilian defender Fabio appears unlikely to be involved having requested to leave in order to return to his homeland.

Fellow full-back Cyrus Christie, midfielder Adlene Guedioura and winger Adama Traore were all restored to the side for the latest 3-2 victory at Preston North End.

The visitors are missing Darron Gibson [groin] while fellow midfielders Paddy McNair [groin] and Aiden McGeady [calf] remain doubtful.

Otherwise, Adam Matthews [calf], Lynden Gooch [hamstring], Lee Cattermole [thigh] Didier Ndong [ankle], Jack Rodwell [hamstring], Jonny Williams [shoulder], Lamine Kone and Duncan Watmore [both knee] were already ruled out.
