Duo set for home bows
Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray looks set to hand home debuts to Albert Adomah and Frazer Richardson when Blackpool come to the Riverside.
Boro ran out 1-0 winners at Charlton last Saturday with Mowbray's two new additions in the starting line-up and they are set to retain their places.
Goalkeeper Jason Steele was forced off a The Valley with an ankle problem but he should be fit to continue in goal while Grant Leadbitter is expected to shake off a knock to feature
Mowbray will check on Jozsef Vargaafter he was involved in the squad in midweek as Hungary drew 1-1 with the Czech Republic.
Tom Ince will serve the second game of his two-match suspension for Blackpool.
The much-coveted winger will miss out after he was disciplined for making an offensive remark to an official during the Seasiders' televised Capital One Cup defeat at Preston.
Fellow wide-man Matt Phillips is also unavailable as he continues his recovery from a broken arm sustained during pre-season training.
Paul Ince could select the same XI that secured a fortuitous 1-0 win at Barnsley last weekend as Blackpool look to continue their 100 per cent winning start to the season.
