Boro monitoring duo

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray will make late decisions on two key men ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet Championship clash with Yeovil.

Central defender Jonathan Woodgate missed Tuesday night's 1-1 home draw with Huddersfield with a calf problem sustained during the 2-0 defeat at QPR last weekend and will be assessed over the next 48 hours. Striker Marvin Emnes is in a similar situation having sat out the last three games with a groin injury.

However, fellow forward Emmanuel Ledesma returns to the squad after completing a three-match ban for his sending off in the 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest on September 17.

Defender Seb Hines is back in full training following his recovery from knee surgery, while striker Curtis Main could be included after returning to the club following a month on loan at Shrewsbury.

Yeovil defender Dan Seaborne is expected to be fit for the trip to the Riverside.

The Glovers head to Middlesbrough looking for their first three-point haul since the opening day and they hope to be able to call on Seaborne, who limped off with a knock he sustained giving away a penalty in Tuesday's 2-1 defeat to Leicester.

Everton loanee Shane Duffy will hope to partner Seaborne again having kept Byron Webster out of the starting line-up on Tuesday despite his return from suspension.

Bristol City loanee Liam Fontaine looks likely to return to the club on Monday after the final piece of rehab and so this match will come too soon for the injured centre-back.
