Middlesbrough Preview – Can Boro grab three on the trot?

After a worrying slump in results which saw Middlesbrough lose four out of five matches from the end of January through to mid-February, the hosts have since responded in positive fashion by winning their last two matches on the trot with victories against Huddersfield Town and Reading.

Recent losses to Blackburn Rovers, Rotherham United, Brentford and Derby County had resulted in Middlesbrough dropping out of the play-off pack but a win on Tuesday night could see the hosts move level on points with 6th placed Bournemouth.

Boro have lost four of their last five matches at home but they recorded a 1-0 win away at Ashton Gate against Bristol City last October, so the ‘double’ could be on the cards here.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Bristol City Preview – Can new-look Robins spark revival?

A six-match losing streak was finally too much for the Bristol City to bear and former manager, Dean Holden, was shown the door following a 2-0 defeat at home to Reading recently but City’s poor run of form continued on the weekend as they were handed a 1-0 loss at home to Barnsley.

In comes former Leicester City manager, Nigel Pearson, to attempt to steady the ship and halt The Robins’ decline which now sees Bristol City sitting in 15th place on the Championship table, conceding a total of 15 goals and scoring just 2 in reply.

In addition, Bristol City have lost their last seven away matches on the trot and it’s hard to see how City can suddenly turn things around on the north-east on Tuesday night as Pearson needs time with his new team.
