Warnock will be without Ashley Fletcher again, while Marcus Browne will also go missing after suffering a hamstring injury in training this week.
Experience with us all the news about structure and team, live updates and analyzes as well as game reactions from the Riverside.
Norwich’s star striker was left out during the international break due to his high workload, but could be used here early.
There was no challenge as such, but he went straight down and clutched his shoulder.
Boro pushes up here and Spence intervenes in a dangerous area to win the ball but is fouled.
Saville was straight, but Hugill seemed uncomfortable. He’s up now and Boro has won a free kick.
Buendia, a cracking player, made space for himself on the edge of the area and tried to bend it into the farthest corner. Just wide.
Farke likes his side jerking it off and playing, and they knock it around the back.
Gibson squeezed the ball right in front of his own box but didn’t panic and Norwich played his way out of trouble.
Norwich is yellow first, followed by Boro, led by Captain Jonny Howson.
We’re only 20 months later, but a lot has changed. Only two players who started for Boro that day are on the team today: Dael Fry and Jonny Howson.
That’s four defeats for the Royals. You have conceded 15 goals in the last five games.
The big boost in team news is, of course, the presence of Paddy McNair on the team sheet.
He only returned to Rockliffe yesterday but was clearly seen as fit and available despite his tough international break schedule.
He sits down on the bench with Patrick Roberts, who again misses a place in the XI.
If he gets in today, you suspect Roberts feels he has a point to prove to both managers.
His loan spell for Norwich City was canceled last season after barely playing for the Canaries.
Warnock didn’t vote to change the replacement rule this week, which means that nine subs can be named and five made.
Now, of course, the Academy players must have earned their place, they can’t just be there because of missing numbers. That sends the wrong message.
But Sam Folarin is here today for all the right reasons. He really impressed Warnock over the summer and was rewarded with a spot on the squad.
It looks like it’s going to be 4-2-3-1, with Spence and Johnson on the flanks.
Cross your fingers Paddy McNair is fit and available. He should be back in Rockliffe yesterday after his international marathon.
George Saville is available and likely to return to the team after missing the Brentford game. Warnock planned to call Sam Morsy late. That would be a boost if he can play.
It would be a surprise if Duncan Watmore got straight into the XI, but he will likely be on the roster.
And then there is Patrick Roberts. Warnock admitted yesterday that the Manchester City loanee is frustrated with his lack of playing time but would be expecting it.
Daniel Farke must have been happy today, because the Norwich boss loves the chance to catch up with Boro gaffer Neil Warnock.
« I like him a lot. I love great characters and he’s a great character in this game.
« He’s been doing it for so many years. I always talk about how quality you need to prove over the long term and you see how many promotions he has won as a coach. He’s so experienced and still full of energy, full of motivation.
“You can always see his hand writing on your teams. Whether you like the way they play or you don’t like it. You have to admire that. This is a sign of the quality of the coach. Maybe a different style than us, but I am full of respect.
“His teams always play with a lot of energy, with a lot of fighting spirit and are always so hard to beat. He brings a great mentality to his players and that is in their hearts, their souls.
“It’s always great to be with him at the games. I love every chat I have with him. It is such a good time. So funny.
“He’s experienced and eager to win, but outside of the games he’s very relaxed. You can have a great time with him after a game and it is always a pleasure to see him. I really like what he does. ”
There is always at least one gemstone in a line. Yesterday? Its I’m a Celebrity Offer. I’m sure you read this, but if you haven’t, it’s HERE.
