TONY MOWBRAY has made five changes for tonight's visit of Leeds United as he looks to end a run of five defeats in the Championship.

Kieron Dyer, Seb Hines, Lukas Jutkiewicz, Nicky Bailey and Emmanuel Ledesma are all left out with Mowbray also likely to mix up the formation.

Stuart Parnaby will return to the Boro right while Jonathan Woodgate has been recalled at the heart of the defence.

And further up the field Faris Haroun, Josh McEachran and Curtis Main will be expected to influence things in the hope of sealing a return to winning ways and a first point of 2013. 

MIDDLESBROUGH (4-2-3-1): Steele; Parnaby, Woodgate, Bikey, Friend; Williams, McEachran; Carayol, Leadbitter, Haroun; Main. Subs: Leutwiler (gk), Bailey, Ledesma, Jutkiewicz, Halliday, Miller, Smallwood.

LEEDS UNITED (4-4-2): Kenny; Peltier, Lees, Byram, Warnock; Green, Brown, Norris, Varney; Morison, McCormack. Subs: Ashdown (gk), Pearce, Austin, White, Tonge, Diouf, Habibou.
