Chris Wilder’s Middlesbrough take on Mark Robins’ Coventry City at the Riverside Stadium in the EFL Championship at the weekend. After suffering a disappointing 1-0 defeat to fellow promotion hopefuls Blackburn Rovers last time out, Boro will be desperate to get back on track with three points here. Both sides are pushing for a play-off berth, and only two points separates the pair in the current standings. Will we see a winner at the Riverside?

Middlesbrough Preview – Will Boro bounce back with a big three points?

Middlesbrough have shot up the Championship table since Chris Wilder took over. Although Monday’s loss at Ewood Park was a setback, Wilder has turned Boro in genuine promotion contenders. They are sitting pretty in eighth, two points behind sixth-place Huddersfield Town.

Before the defeat at Blackburn, Middlesbrough were on an excellent seven-game unbeaten run in the Championship. Wilder’s side had won six and drawn one since losing at home to Preston North End on 23rd November.

Our betting prediction:
Middlesbrough to win & both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1120 GMT, Friday 28 January)

Middlesbrough have taken maximum points from their last four at the Riverside, seeing off Swansea City, Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest and Reading. Can they get back on track with a fifth straight home success on Saturday? They are the bookies’ favourites at 11/10.

Coventry City Preview – Can the Sky Blues pick up a positive result at the Riverside?

Mark Robins’ Coventry City have certainly taken many people by surprise this season. Ahead of this round of fixtures, the Sky Blues are in ninth spot with 40 points after 11 wins, seven draws and eight defeats. City are four points behind sixth with two games in hand.

After going six league games without a win, Coventry secured an FA Cup triumph over Derby County to kick off 2022. A 4-1 league victory at Peterborough United followed. They lost 2-1 at home to Queens Park Rangers in the next one but bounced back with a vital 1-0 win over Stoke City in midweek.
