Jonathan Woodgate returns as one of five changes for Middlesbrough, while opponents Sheffield Wednesday bring in two new faces of their own.

Jonathan Woodgate will return to the starting lineup for Middlesbrough as captain in their Championship match against Sheffield Wednesday this evening.

Woodgate is one of five changes for Boro as they look to move top of the table. Justin Hoyte, Ismael Miller, Emanuel Ledesma and Marvin Emnes also come in for Tony Mowbray's men.

Stuart Parnaby, Sebastian Hines, Faris Haroun, Nick Bailey and Lukas Jutkiewicz are the men who make way for the hosts, who have picked up 20 points from the last 24 available.

Sheffield Wednesday, meanwhile, have made two changes to the side that lost 2-0 to Blackpool three days ago, bringing in Paul Corry and Gary Madine in place of Rhys McCabe and Chris O'Grady, who drop to the bench.

Middlesbrough: Steele; Hoyte, Friend, Woodgate, Bikey; Leadbitter, McEachran; Miller, Ledesma, McDonald; Emnes

Sheffield Wednesday: Kirkland; Buxton, Gardner, D Jones, Llera; Semedo, Antonio, Corry, Barkley; Madine, Bothroyd
