Middlesbrough Preview – Will Boro avoid back-to-back defeats?

Middlesbrough are still very much in the mix for promotion, but Neil Warnock’s men have been in poor form of late. Since winning three in a row in mid-December, Boro have lost seven of their subsequent 12 Championship matches.

Middlesbrough have really struggled on their own patch in 2021. They ended 2020 with four straight home successes, but the Teessiders have lost five of their last six at the Riverside Stadium. In midweek, they were beaten 3-1 at home by struggling Bristol City.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1258 GMT, Friday 26 February)

After their poor form and Cardiff’s resurgence, Boro are now below the Bluebirds in the current Championship table. Defeat on Saturday will see Cardiff open up a six-point gap, but a Boro win will put them level. This is a huge fixture for Warnock and his men.

Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds make it seven in a row?

Before Mick McCarthy arrived at the Cardiff City Stadium in late January, Cardiff City had lost six league and cup games in a row and had won just one of eight in all competitions. However, they are unbeaten under the former Republic of Ireland boss, winning six and drawing two.

Cardiff started life under their new manager with back-to-back draws with Barnsley and Millwall, but the South Wales club have not put a foot wrong since. Cardiff have won their last six in the Championship, seeing off promotion rivals Brentford at the Vitality Stadium last time out.
