Middlesbrough News and Form
There has been a bit of a drop off in the form of Middlesbrough. They have lost their last two and have gone winless in their last three played. Their last two games have ended in 2-1 scoreline reverses against Brentford and Preston. They have actually suffered three losses in their last six now. So they need to get the ship steadied in their push for a playoff spot. They aren’t doing too badly on the road with a W3 D1 L1 record in their last five away games. Middlesbrough have the best defensive record in the Championship this season and have taken a clean sheet in 39% of their road games.
In attack, Middlesbrough have averaged slightly over a goal per game. They have only produced the one goal in their last three away from the Riverside. A third of their road games only have made it over 2.5 goals. Of the eight away victories which they have posted, six of them have been by a one-goal margin only. Boro have been level at half time in 10 of their 18 away fixtures. Two-thirds of their away goals have been scored in the second half of fixtures.
