Middlesbrough face a nervous wait to find out the full extent of Lukas Jutkiewicz's knee injury.
The striker picked up the knock during training, and is undergoing scans to find out the extent of the damage. If the injury is as bad as first feared, he may need an operation to cure the problem.
The 23-year-old was out with a similar problem at the start the season but has scored four goals in six games since his return. Losing Jutkiewicz for any length of time is bound to be a huge blow to Boro's promotion hopes.
