Middlesbrough are back in Championship action this evening, when they'll be looking to close the gap on the play-off places by picking up a win against Alex Neil's Preston North End.

Speaking ahead of the game, Boro boss Neil Warnock detailed the squad's current injury concerns, and claimed: “I think both Fletcher and Tav are going to be training. Hopefully if not tomorrow then Saturday they could be available before the international break.”

“He’s (Darnell Fisher) done really, really well and hasn’t really put a foot wrong “He’s just got an Achilles tendon problem so I didn’t want to rush him back and then lose him, especially now (Anfernee) Dijksteel is out for the season.

“We’ll see how they are today because Djed (Spence) picked up a bit of a knock on Saturday so we’ll just have to see this afternoon when they are all in.”

The last time Boro faced the Lilywhites, back in December, they were hammered 3-0 at Deepdale, and Warnock's side will be out for revenge as they look to improve considerably on the previous performance.

Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Middlesbrough and the rest of the Championship, as the build-up to the upcoming weekend's action begins:
