Steele makes first league start for Boro

JASON Steele will make his first league start for Middlesbrough at Leicester's Walkers Stadium this afternoon. Gordon Strachan has kept faith with the 19-year-old goalkeeper after he impressed during Tuesday night's Carling Cup win at Chesterfield. Danny Coyne is named on the bench, with Brad Jones nowhere to be seen as his anticipated move to Liverpool moves ever closer. Steele is not the only teenager in the Boro line-up, as Luke Williams also retains his place after a spirited show four days ago. Kris Boyd and Scott McDonald resume their attacking partnership up front. LEICESTER (4-4-2): Weale; Neilson, Moreno, Hobbs, Berner; Wellens, King, Oakley, Dyer; Howard, Campbell. Subs: Logan (gk), Morrison, Gallagher, Fryatt, N'Guessan, Kennedy, Lamey. MIDDLESBROUGH (4-3-3): Steele; Hoyte, McManus, Wheater, Bates; Bailey, Thomson, Robson; McDonald, Boyd, L Williams. Subs: Coyne (gk), Hines, O'Neil, Arca, Kink, Miller, Lita.
