Defensive problems mount for Boro

Last Updated: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 11:07

Middlesbrough head coach Aitor Karanka faces more defensive problems ahead of the Sky Bet Championship clash with Millwall.

Central defender Daniel Ayala is suspended after being sent off during the 1-0 win at Burnley last weekend and joins counterpart Ben Gibson on the sidelines as he completes a two-match ban. In addition, Seb Hines (thigh), Rhys Williams (Achilles) and Stuart Parnaby (knee) are all still out.

However, there is better news of full-back George Friend, who missed the Burnley game with a muscle injury but could return to face the Lions.

Striker Kei Kamara is back in light training after undergoing hernia surgery, but he is still some way away from rejoining the group, while fellow forward Muzzy Carayol (anterior cruciate ligament) will not play again this season.
