Middlesbrough boss Jonathan Woodgate could be without three players for his side's trip to Kenilworth Road on Friday evening.
Irish international goalkeeper Darren Randolph has been sidelined with a calf injury since mid-July, long-serving left back George Friend has played just once in pre-season and defender Dael Fry has been out of action since picking up a hamstring injury last term.
Speaking to the club's official website, Woodgate said: "Dael's getting there, but he'll be a couple of weeks I think.
"I don't want to rush him - I've been in the same boat.
"Darren and George are there or thereabouts - I’d like to think so (that they'd play)."
