Middlesbrough have received a double injury boost with the return of Luke Steele and Seb Hines.
Having not featured this campaign due to a broken wrist, Steele has recovered well enough to take part in a behind-closed-doors game with Blackburn on Tuesday.
Defender Hines has been out of action for the last five weeks following a knee problem.
He will resume training after being given the all-clear.
Neither player is likely to be involved as Boro look to continue their unbeaten start to the npower Championship campaign when Millwall visit the Riverside on Saturday.
