MIDDLESBROUGH manager Neil Warnock has gone with the same team that beat Sheffield United in midweek to face Hull City this afternoon. 

Sol Bamba keeps his place in the heart of defence after a man of the match showing at the Riverside Stadium as Boro kept a clean sheet. 

Duncan Watmore continues to partner Andraz Sporar in attack while Paddy McNair continues his role in the midfield alongside captain Jonny Howson. 

Warnock has also given a chance to young full-back Williams Kokolo who has been named among the substitutes this afternoon. Warnock has only named six substitutes on the bench.

Midfielder Martin Payero is suffering with an ankle injury and is not in the matchday squad this afternoon. Grant Hall has not been named among the substitutes.

Boro are looking for back to back wins this afternoon against Hull City side that sit second bottom in the Championship table with six points all season.
