Match Preview

Haroun gives Mowbray options Faris Haroun could boost boss Tony Mowbray's selection options as Middlesbrough prepare to host fellow play-off hopefuls Cardiff. Haroun has been sidelined in recent weeks with a hamstring injury, but the midfielder could be ready to return to Boro's matchday squad. Top scorer Marvin Emnes is expected to play through the pain once more as the club's medical staff continue to manage his knee condition. Rhys Williams is still out with the ankle ligament injury he suffered against Leeds last month, while captain and fellow defender Matthew Bates is out for the season after undergoing knee ligament surgery on Monday. Goalkeeper Danny Coyne has returned to light training as he steps up his rehabilitation from a calf strain. Boro head into the game seventh in the npower Championship, outside the top six on goal difference and two points ahead of Cardiff. Cardiff manager Malky Mackay has no new injury or suspension worries. Mackay, whose side have drawn each of their last four matches, is unlikely to change his starting line-up at the Riverside, although he will have to decide whether to drop misfiring striker Kenny Miller. The Scot has not netted for the Bluebirds in any of his last 14 outings, and faces stiff competition from Joe Mason, Rudy Gestede and Robert Earnshaw for a place in Mackay's XI as Cardiff look to get their play-off push back on track. Midfielder Stephen McPhail has featured in Cardiff's last four games following his return from illness and is set to start once more this weekend.
