Sports Mole previews Saturday's Championship clash between Middlesbrough and Yeovil Town.

Middlesbrough will be hoping to pick up their first home win of the season when they face struggling Yeovil Town on Saturday.

Tony Mowbray's side currently sit 19th in the league having failed to win any of their last eight games. The Teesiders were held to a 1-1 draw by Huddersfield Town on Tuesday evening.

Yeovil have not won since the opening day of the season and Tuesday's 2-1 reversal at the hands of Leicester City was their seventh defeat in nine outings.

Mowbray could name the same XI that drew with Huddersfield which would mean a starting berth for defender Ben Gibson, who scored on his debut against the Terriers.

Emmanuel Ledesma could return to the side following his three-match suspension.

Yeovil boss Gary Johnson has no new injury concerns ahead of the match and could name the same side that lost against Leicester.
