But there is one new absentee with Marcus Browne sidelined with a hamstring injury sustained in training earlier this week.

Watmore signed a short-term deal earlier this week, while Warnock confirmed that Hall’s ‘mini pre-season’ has gone well. 

“Duncan has been a refreshing new face around the place,” said the boss. “He’s fitted in really well.

“And Grant is up to speed. He’s been breathing through his proverbials this past week!

“It’s difficult to get back up to it because the training has been so intense, and you can pick up a few niggles, but he’s done really well.

“I think he’s looking forward to getting back into the pack really.”

George Saville is also available for selection after missing the Brentford game due to family matters.

“He’s back available for us,” he said.

“I knew how important the Northern Ireland game was, but before we played at Brentford I told him family was more important than football.

“He went to play that game in Belfast and after that went straight home.

“Now he’s looking forward to playing I’d imagine, he’s had plenty on his mind.”

The loss of Browne is a disappointment, though.

“We lost Marcus Browne to a hamstring injury on Tuesday,” Warnock said.

“It was a shame because it was the last day we did any intense work, and he’ll miss a few weeks.

“It’s going to be a big test for all the squad, we’re going to have to do things to keep on top of it.”

Warnock is also hoping to have Paddy McNair available after he returned from international duty with Northern Ireland.

The Boro boss had already spoken of his frustration of McNair’s inclusion in the starting line-up for three games in seven days for Northern Ireland and he added: “The amount of running he’s done in midfield...we all wanted him to win that first game but I presumed he’d only play one of the next two. 

“I can understand their managed wanting a result, but I think the decisions were selfish and immature.”

Another player who will be checked on is Sam Morsy, after his recent hamstring injury.

"He's not quite been 100% has Sam," Warnock said.

"He's one of those who wants to play every single minute so he'll always say he's alright!

"We'll have another look at him today."
