Middlesbrough Preview – Comfortable home win for Warnock’s men?

Middlesbrough battled back to earn an excellent draw at Fulham on the opening weekend. Harry Wilson, who cost £12m, opened the scoring for the Cottagers, but Boro stuck at it and left with a point thanks to Marc Bola’s goal 13 minutes from time.

Warnock did a steady job at the Riverside Stadium in his first full season in charge. Middlesbrough finished in tenth last term, winning 18, losing 18 and drawing ten of their 46 league matches. They picked up 37 points at the Riverside, winning 11 times.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1122 GMT, Friday 13 August)

The bookmakers have tipped Warnock’s Boro to have a successful season, with some having just Fulham, West Bromwich Albion, Sheffield United and Bournemouth ahead in the race for promotion.

Four points from their opening two Championship matches will signal a good start for Middlesbrough. The home win on Saturday is priced at 3/4.

Bristol City Preview – Robins’ woeful winless run to continue?

Bristol City have had a miserable 2021 so far. In fact, since the turn of the year, the Robins have picked up just five Championship wins. Nigel Pearson arrived back in February, but the former Leicester City and Watford manager has struggled to turn their fortunes around. Under Pearson, City have won only two league matches.

Bristol City looked to be on their way to a massive three points on the opening weekend. Chris Martin opened the scoring against Blackpool a minute before the break. However, the Championship new boys rescued a point at Ashton Gate right at the death.
