Steve McClaren faces a selection dilemma ahead of his side’s clash with Middlesbrough this weekend in a fixture that could potentially kick-start their top six ambitions this season.
According to West London Sport, Angel Rangel could be set to miss the clash with Boro with a muscle injury, which has ruled him out of training since the 2-1 defeat to Leeds United at the weekend.
