MIDDLESBROUGH will have a new man in charge for their visit to Stoke City on Saturday.
The much-travelled Neil Warnock has replaced Jonathan Woodgate in the hot seat, as Boro fight on to avoid the drop down into League One.
Warnock, 71, comes out of retirement after a seven-month break, having left Cardiff City last November. Boro will be his 18th club in charge.
Boro are above the relegation zone only on goal difference, two points below Stoke in the Championship table, and will be keen to quickly atone for a 3-0 defeat at home to Swansea City on their return to action at the weekend.
Warnock has led clubs to promotion a record eight times and also has an impressive CV for steering clubs out of relegation trouble.
The Yorkshireman made 327 appearances as a player in the Football League, which included a spell with Crewe Alex.
