AITOR KARANKA has named a much-changed Middlesbrough team for this evening's Capital One Cup second-round tie with Preston.
Dimi Konstantopoulos takes over in goal, although it should be noted that the Greek keeper also came into the side for the first-round win over Oldham.
Seb Hines will partner Daniel Ayala at centre-half, with James Husband taking over from George Friend at left-back, just as he did at Oldham.
Adam Clayton and Dean Whitehead are expected to be Boro's deep-lying midfielders, with Albert Adomah and Emilio Nsue lining up on the flanks.
Lee Tomlin will play in the attacking-midfield hole, with teenage striker Bradley Fewster starting up front for the second League Cup game in succession.
Kike forms part of a strong bench which also features Friend, Kenneth Omeruo, Grant Leadbitter and Emmanuel Ledesma.
Middlesbrough (4-2-3-1): Konstantopoulos; Damia, Ayala, Hines, Husband; Whitehead, Clayton; Adomah, Tomlin, Nsue; Fewster.
Subs: Mejias (gk), Friend, Omeruo, Reach, Leadbitter, Ledesma, Kike.
Preston (4-3-3): Jones; Wiseman, King, Clarke, B Davies; Browne, Kilkenny, Welsh; Hayhurst, Hugill, Laird.
Subs: Stuckmann (gk), Garner, Woods, Little, Brownhill, Gallagher, K Davies.
