DAVE Kitson will make his Middlesbrough debut in this afternoon's home game with Nottingham Forest.

Kitson has been named in the starting line-up alongside former Reading team-mate Leroy Lita as Gordon Strachan attempts to claim his first victory as Boro boss.

Strachan has made three changes in all, with fit-again full-back Emanuel Pogatetz wearing a protective mask as he replaces Jonathan Grounds.

The final change sees Julio Arca returning to midfield, with Rhys Williams expected to start at right-back in place of the absent Justin Hoyte.
