AITOR KARANKA has named an unchanged side for the first time in 66 games for this evening’s match with Notthingham Forest at the Riverside.
Middlesbrough are looking to record back-to-back home victories following Saturday’s 2-0 home win over Ipswich Town and Karanka has opted to start the same line-up with Danny Graham spear-heading his attack.
That means Dimi Konstantopoulos keeps his place in goal ahead of Jason Steele, who is on the bench.
Albert Adomah returns to the bench for Boro alongside Dean Whitehead.
Middlesbrough: Konstantopoulos; Varga, Gibson, Omeruo, Friend; Chalobah, Leadbitter; Ledesma, Tomlin, Carayol; Graham.
Subs: Steele, Butterfield, L Williams, Whitehead, Adomah, Kamara, Atkinson.
Nottingham Forest: Darlow; Collins, Mackie, Fox, Greening, Lanchelles, Jara, Paterson, Majewski, Cox, Abdoun.
Subs: De Vries, Harding, Moussi, Henderson, Reid, Derbyshire, Gomis.
