Stuani was on international duty when he pick up the injury and Karanka has now confirmed that he has torn muscles in his hamstring and groin.

The Boro boss was frustrated with Uruguay for their use of the striker and he has been a big miss as Boro have won just one of their last three without Stuani.

Stuani, a £3.6m summer signing from Spanish side Espanyol, has hit the ground running at the Riverside and has scored seven goals already this season, despite playing much of his football on the right wing.

Middlesbrough are currently fourth in the Sky Bet Championship after collecting 24 points from their opening 13 league games.

Meanwhile, Boro face a tough trip to Old Trafford on Wednesday night to face Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United in the Capital One Cup, a game which will see nearly 10,000 Boro fans travel to the Premier League giants.
