Middlesbrough and Aston Villa take on each other as they have not met since last season’s Championship play-off semi-final – Villa won 1-0 on aggregate thanks to an away win at the Riverside Stadium.
Gestede was taken off during Tuesday’s 1-1 draw at Preston as was Lewis Wing, who faces a late fitness test.
Aston Villa and Middlesbrough met five times in all competitions last season – Villa kept four clean sheets in those games.
The visitors will be hoping John McGinn will be available after he played the majority of their thrilling 5-5 draw with Nottingham Forest on Wednesday.
McGinn missed the derby against Birmingham last weekend and according to manager Dean Smith is still being treated as an injured player.
In all competitions, Tony Pulis has collected just one win in his last seven matches against Aston Villa
Dean Smith has never beaten Middlesbrough as a manager in four meetings in all competitions – he’s faced a different manager each time (Tony Mowbray, Aitor Karanka, Garry Monk, Pulis).
Jonny Howson’s four assists have earned Middlesbrough seven points in the Championship this season – only West Bromwich Albion’s Matt Phillips (eight points from five assists) has earned his side more.
Is this game going to be another 10-goal thriller involving Aston Villa? I can’t imagine that’s too likely with Middlesbrough involved! Considering they have conceded just 10 times in their 19 games so far
Visitors Villa are weighing up whether to risk John McGinn (calf), who played in the midweek 5-5 draw with Nottingham Forest despite not being fully fit.
Aston Villa have recovered 14 points from trailing positions in this season’s Championship, the most in the division.
Lewis Wing could feature despite being substituted on Tuesday, although the club are still assessing the injury.
The youngster trained on Thursday and a late decision will be made about whether Wing is rested for another week or is deemed fit to play against Villa.
