Middlesbrough Review – Can the borough find the right form to create a strong promotion charge this season?

Middlesbrough kicked off the championship proceedings last week against Watford. Unfortunately they lost at vicarage road after a poor showing on the pitch. So the mood within the camp will be to change that narrative and get back to winning ways.

Our betting prediction:
Away Win & BTTS

(odds taken 1500 GMT, Wednesday 16 September)


With the attacking options at their disposal of former West Ham striker Ashley Fletcher and robust forward Britt Assombolonga it is surprising that Middlesborough did not pose more of an attacking threat against newly relegated side watford.

They will be hoping to put the question marks around them as a partnership to bed this time round and produce a better shift this time round.

Prior to the first league game of the season, the Borough had been in a rich vein of form in front of goal, bagging 10 goals in 3 matches. Including a 5-1 win against Premier League side Newcastle.

Suggesting they are more than capable of producing goals and securing wins, but it’s a question now of showing their bottle and character in the matches that matter.

Defensively, middlesbrough have been quite susceptible to conceding goals. In the first round of the EFL Cup they conceded 3 goals at home to League One Shrewsbury so the likes of Deal Fry and Paddy Mcnaor will have to be on their A Game.


Bournemouth Review – Can the Cherries continue their hot form in efforts to go straight back into the Premier League?

Bournemouth are plying their trade once again t=in the championship for the first time since 2015 and they did everything possible to start off in the right fashion to get back to Championship status winning a thrilling 3-2 tie against Blackburn.

Goals from Stacey, Lerma and Danjuma ensured that the cherries came away with the three points. And they will be hoping to kick on from that result on saturday and make it 2 wins from 2.

The element of which the Cherries need to work on is the same problem that caused their relegation from the Premier League; Defensively Bournemouth are poor and concede too many goals to the point they need to score 3 in order to win the game.

Losing the likes of Nthean Ake at the back and their bad business selling Tyrone Mings to Villa means that the backline is struggling tremendously. Blackburn was the latest team to expose those fragilities at the back and Middlesborough will be looking at the performance to plan and set up how to win this fixture on Saturday.

This game is heading into an end to end and attacking showcase of what the championship has to offer which is exciting for the neutral, but for the fans of both sides I expect it to be a nail biting affair.
