Middlesbrough vs Bristol City - Lewis Wing a doubt for Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough midfielder Lewis Wing is a doubt for Tuesday night’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Bristol City.

Wing has been nursing a groin injury for some time and missed Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat by leaders Norwich as a result, and he is rated at only 50-50 to return against the Robins.

Defender Ryan Shotton has also been playing with medics monitoring a knee problem, but he is expected to be able to continue.

Manager Tony Pulis could opt to make changes once again after drafting Adam Clayton, Ashley Fletcher and Britt Assombalonga into the team at the weekend only to see his side slip to a fourth successive defeat.

City boss Lee Johnson has no fresh selection problems following Saturday’s thrilling 3-2 win at Sheffield United which saw his team leapfrog Boro into seventh place in the table on goals scored.

Republic of Ireland midfielder Callum O’Dowda has returned to training after missing his country’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against Gibraltar and Georgia and the trip to Sheffield with a knee injury, but the game could come too soon for him.

Johnson will run the rule over his troops before making a final decision with several players carrying bumps and bruises after the game at Bramall Lane.

However, only goalkeepers Niki Maenpaa and Frank Fielding are on the long-term casualty list as the season reaches the business end.
