In doubt: Middlesbrough's Emanuel Pogatetz
Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate is hoping for better news on the fitness front as he prepares to put a patched-up side together for tomorrow's FA Cup fourth round trip to Wolves.Skipper Emanuel Pogatetz (hamstring) and midfielder Julio Arca (knee) are battling against the injuries which kept them out of last weekend's 3-0 Barclays Premier League defeat at West Brom.Didier Digard begins a three-match ban for his sending-off at the Hawthorns, while teenage midfielder Josh Walker and striker Jeremie Aliadiere (both ankle) remain on the long-term casualty list.Justin Hoyte in back in light training after knee surgery, but striker Marlon King's loan deal is yet to be finalised - and he would have been cup-tied anyway - while Mido is currently in talks with Wigan.Provisional squad: Turnbull, Jones, McMahon, Bates, Riggott, Huth, Wheater, Taylor, Bennett, O'Neil, Shawky, Arca, Johnson, Tuncay, Downing, Alves, Emnes, Porritt.
