Marvin Emnes is fighting to be fit for the weekend for Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough striker Marvin Emnes will be given every chance to shake off an ankle injury ahead of Saturday's npower Championship clash with Crystal Palace.

The 24-year-old Dutchman missed Tuesday night's 3-2 victory over Burnley with the problem he picked up at Barnsley, but could yet return at the weekend.

Manager Tony Mowbray told the club's official website: "It's a wait-and-see scenario."

He added: "We took the gamble to leave him on the pitch at the weekend because he can make a difference for us.

"The protective boot is no longer on his foot. Let's hope he has half a chance for the weekend."

Emnes might not be the only change to Boro's line-up, with Mowbray saying: "Behind the scenes, we're trying to add a player or two, so let's see what the weekend brings."
