TONY MOWBRAY has made four changes at Burnley to the Middlesbrough team that lost 4-1 at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

With Lukas Jutkiewicz, Stuart Parnaby and Kieron Dyer all missing through injury and Faris Haroun named on the bench, Mowbray has mixed it up in a bid to return to winning ways.

Nicky Bailey looks set to hold in midfield with Andy Halliday and Josh McEachran providing the with in front of him alongside central pairing Richie Smallwood.

There are also recalls for Stephen McManus - playing for the frist time since October 6 - to the heart of the defence in the absence of a Boro defensive crisis and Marvin Emnes slots back in up front.

BURNLEY (4-1-4-1): Grant; Trippier, Shackell, Long, Lafferty; Scott; Patterson, Marney, McCann, Stanislas; Austin. Subs: Jensen (gk), Richards, Edgar, Bartley, Mills, Vokes, Treacy.

MIDDLESBROUGH (4-1-4-1): Steele; Williams, McManus, Bikey, Friend; Bailey; McEachran, Leadbitter, Smallwood, Halliday; Emnes. Subs: Leutwiler (gk), Miller, Carayol, L Williams, Main, Ledesma, Haroun.
