Boro welcome back defender

Full-back George Friend is back in contention for Middlesbrough's FA Cup fifth-round clash with League One Oxford on Saturday

Friend has been sidelined since suffering a calf muscle injury in the 1-0 victory over Accrington in the last round of the domestic cup competition, but he has now fully recovered.

Gaston Ramirez could also be given his first start since January 2 after earning some game time from the bench in last weekend’s goalless draw with Everton.

However, summer signing Antonio Barragan remains out with a hamstring problem and January arrival Adlene Guedioura is cup-tied after featuring for Watford in the FA Cup.
