Middlesbrough hope to have central defender Matthew Kilgallon in the squad for the npower Championship clash with Sheffield United.The Teessiders are working to finalise the 26-year-old's loan switch from neighbours Sunderland in time for him to be available.However, skipper Gary O'Neil, who played the second half of last Saturday's 0-0 draw at Leicester, is struggling with illness and a knee problem.Manager Gordon Strachan has been hit too by the loss of defender Seb Hines, who has suffered a reaction to his first 90 minutes since last September on his return from a serious ankle injury for the reserves in midweek, and he is to see a specialist.Kevin Thomson (fractured fibula), Willo Flood (dislocated knee), Jonathan Franks (herniated disc) and Rhys Williams (pelvic injury) remain on the sidelines, although Tony McMahon (thigh) has returned to training.
