Middlesbrough Preview – Can Boro make it back-to-back wins?

After just one win from their opening six Championship games, the midweek victory at the City Ground was just what the doctor ordered for Neil Warnock and his Middlesbrough team. They piled more misery on bottom club Nottingham Forest, with Andraz Sporar and Onel Hernandez on target in a 2-0 win.

Since winning their opening home match of the season against Bristol City, Boro have taken just one point from their following two at the Riverside. They lost 3-2 to Queens Park Rangers and drew 1-1 with Blackburn Rovers.

Our betting prediction:
Middlesbrough to win both halves

(odds taken 1542 GMT, Friday 17 September)

Middlesbrough are one of a handful of clubs with Premier League aspirations in the Championship. After two wins, two defeats and three draws, Warnock will be looking for some consistency. Can they make it back-to-back wins with three points on Saturday?

Blackpool Preview – Can Pool return to the seaside with a positive result?

Blackpool booked their spot back in the Championship after years away by winning the EFL League One play-offs last term. Pool will be desperate to avoid an instant return to the third tier, but the Seasiders have made a poor start.

Blackpool drew two and lost three of their opening five. However, they pulled off the result of the season last weekend, beating Marco Silva’s Fulham 1-0 at Bloomfield Road. Unfortunately for Neil Critchley and his team, the Tangerines lost 3-0 at home to Huddersfield Town last time out.

These two have already met in the Carabao Cup this season. Callum Connolly, Shayne Lavery and Keshi Anderson scored in an impressive 3-0 home victory for Blackpool.

The last league meeting between the pair came back in the 2014-15 Championship season. Middlesbrough won 2-1 at Bloomfield Road, while the fixture at the Riverside ended all square.


Key Facts – Middlesbrough vs Blackpool Betting Tip

  • Middlesbrough’s win at the City Ground was only their second league success this term
  • Blackpool have lost five of their last seven league and cup matches
  • Pool have not beaten Boro since September 2012


Blackpool wiped the floor with Middlesbrough in the League Cup meeting last month, but Warnock has never been a great admirer of the cup competitions, and his side will be well up for this one after the midweek away win.

Blackpool failed to build on their stunning victory over Fulham, and we can see Critchley’s troops crashing to another defeat this weekend. Take a punt on Middlesbrough to win to nil at 15/8.

Onel Hernandez opened his Boro account in midweek with a goal at the City Ground. The 28-year-old Cuban is available at 11/4 to follow that up with another goal this weekend.
