MIDDLESBROUGH are again without Dael Fry and Hayden Hackney at Leeds United, with Michael Carrick naming the same XI that started against Preston last time out.

The only change on the bench is the fit-again Lukas Engel replacing the unavailable Sam Greenwood.

It's not clear how long Fry and Hackney will be out of action as things stand, but their absence is a big blow for Boro at Elland Road.

Anfernee Dijksteel, Rav van den Berg, Paddy McNair and Alex Bangura continue in defence, with Dan Barlaser partnering Jonny Howson in midfield. Emmanuel Latte Lath is again preferred to Josh Coburn up-front, and the Ivorian will be supported by Isaiah Jones, Matt Crooks and Morgan Rogers.

Law McCabe and Fin Cartwright are again among the substitutes.

Leeds are unchanged after their midweek win over Swansea City, with ex-Boro pair Djed Spence and Patrick Bamford among the substitutes.
