Woodgate poised for Boro return

Central defender Jonathan Woodgate could return to the Middlesbrough squad for the home clash with Sheffield Wednesday.

The former England international missed Tuesday night's 0-0 draw at Nottingham Forest as a result of his exertions in the 4-1 victory at Charlton three days earlier but is expected to be available.

Manager Tony Mowbray, who has himself been struggling with a virus, will make late checks on a series of other players before naming his team.

Strikers Ishmael Miller and Marvin Emnes are nursing hamstring problems and like midfielder Kevin Thomson, who has a calf strain, will be assessed.

Muzzy Carayol and Curtis Main (both knee), Julio Arca (toe) and Rhys Williams (ankle ligaments) remain on the long-term casualty list.
