Neil Warnock will check on the progress of Paddy McNair today as the Boro boss weighs up his options for Saturday’s trip to Millwall.

The Northern Ireland international - who has been called up for his country’s World Cup qualifiers in the next few weeks - pulled up in Tuesday’s victory over Preston North End. 

“He’s hoping to do some training today,” Warnock said.

“We think he’ll be OK for the international games.

“They’re important games for the Northern Irish so if he’s able to he’ll want to play.”

Warnock may look to freshen up his side elsewhere as he seeks a third win in the space of a week.

“It’s been pleasing to get the points and not to concede,” he said.

“But this is the third game in seven days, so we’ll be looking if we need one or two fresh legs. 

“We don’t want to put anyone in jeopardy, especially with the break coming up.

“We’ve got to get a happy medium, and put out the best team to win the game.”

The Boro boss will take a look at his striking options before the visit to The Den.

“It think we’ve got to be careful with Fletch, I got a bit carried away last time,” he said.

“Chuba’s put a lot of work in the past few games, contributed to the goals, and that’s all you can ask from your striker.

“Britt I’m not sure about his injury, I’ll have to speak to him today.”
