Middlesbrough will be looking to extend their unbeaten run when they take on Coventry City at the Riverside tomorrow.
Neil Warnock’s side have enjoyed a decent start to the campaign, although they are in the bottom half having drawn four of their opening seven games.
Nevertheless, the experienced boss will feel his team can kick on and he will expect three points against a Sky Blues side that have won just once on their return to the Championship.
Having picked up a good point at Cardiff City last time out, Boro are unlikely to make too many changes for the game and here we provide the latest injury update following Warnock’s press conference earlier today.
No new concerns
The main talking point was that Boro have no fresh worries for the fixture, which means everyone came through the game in the Welsh capital unscathed and he remains without several who were already out.
Warnock has stressed that he will look to manage his squad carefully as he prepares for what will be a very busy period as the games come thick and fast.
The boss admitted that he is having to monitor the summer recruit carefully, as the tricky winger has suffered with muscle fatigue after his only appearance so far this season against Bristol City.
As he was an unused substitute against the Bluebirds, Roberts can expect to feature at some point tomorrow, although it remains to be seen whether that’s from the start.
The striker missed the win at Ashton Gate but came on for the final 25 minutes at Cardiff and Warnock confirmed Assombalonga got through that with no issues at all.
So, he will present the manager with a selection headache for when Mark Robins’ side visit.
