Middlesbrough begin the new year with a visit to Preston North End this afternoon (kick-off 3.00pm).

Manager Tony Pulis will be hoping for an immediate reaction after seeing his first game in charge ending with a 1-0 home defeat to Aston Villa.

Brazilian full-back Fabio could be recalled having missed out due to illness, while there may be other changes following a trio of them at the weekend.

The hosts are currently a place higher and a couple of points better off than their latest opponents.

New striker Louis Moult wasn’t expected to be involved for them, however, as his move from Motherwell was still being finalised.
