Boro Reach for Adam

Middlesbrough have winger Adam Reach available for their Sky Bet Championship clash with relegation battlers Barnsley.

The 21-year-old is back at the club following his loan spell with Bradford and is in contention to play some part.

Boro have tasted defeat in each of their last two games and boss Aitor Karanka has options available to him should he wish to freshen things up.

Jacob Butterfield could return to face his former club after dropping to the bench for Tuesday's 2-0 defeat at Reading, while Jonathan Woodgate, Grant Leadbitter and Lee Tomlin also provide options.

Kelvin Etuhu and Jack Hunt are both hoping to give Barnsley's survival fight a boost by returning to contention.

Both players missed Monday's defeat at Derby, Etuhu due to an ankle injury and Hunt with a hamstring problem and boss Danny Wilson will give them as long as possible before making a decision.

On-loan Hull striker Nick Proschwitz is pushing for a recall after scoring his fourth goal for the club at Derby, while Wilson has no new injury or suspension worries.

The Reds, looking to avoid a third straight defeat, are four points from safety with two games remaining.
