JAYSON LEUTWILER has been handed his second start for Middlesbrough in tonight's Capital One Cup tie with Accrington Stanley at the Riverside Stadium.
Leutwiler, a signing from Basel 12 months ago, has been given a chance to impress against League Two opposition so Jason Steele is included on the bench.
Young defender Ben Gibson is also in line for his first start in a Boro shirt at the heart of the defence and he replaces the rested Jonathan Woodgate.
The only other changes to the team which lost to Leicester City on Saturday sees Emmanuel Ledesma come in for Dean Whitehead and Justin Hoyte replaces Stuart Parnaby at right-back.
MIDDLESBROUGH: Leutwiler; Hoyte, Gibson, R Williams, Friend; Leadbitter, Varga; Ledesma, Emnes, Carayol; Jutkiewicz. Subs: Steele (gk), Williams L, Halliday, Whitehead, Reach, Main, Smallwood.
ACCRINGTON (4-4-1-1): Dunbavin; Hunt, Atkinson, Aldred, Liddle; Hatfield, Richardson, Clark, Mingoia; Murphy; Carver. Subs: Joyce, Winnard, McCartan, Miller, Gray, Wilson, Windass.
