Middlesbrough Preview – Will Boro continue superb form with another three points?

Chris Wilder has turned Middlesbrough into genuine promotion contenders after taking over from Neil Warnock in November. After a run of good results, Boro are now in seventh, level on points with sixth-place Nottingham Forest.

Wilder started with one point from his opening two games, but Middlesbrough have gone on to win seven of the following ten in the Championship. They are also through to the fifth round of the FA Cup after a stunning win at Old Trafford last weekend. The North Yorkshire club followed that up with a battling away draw at Queens Park Rangers in midweek.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1118 GMT, Friday 11 February)

Middlesbrough are on a superb home run at present, winning the last five at the Riverside since losing to Preston in Wilder’s second in charge in late November. Can they claim another home win here?

Derby County Preview – Can the Rams cause an upset at the Riverside?

A few months ago, Derby County were doomed and looked certain to drop into EFL League One. However, despite having 21 points deducted due to administration, County are just four points away from safety after an excellent run of results.

The players have got on with matters on the pitch and have picked up nine wins, 12 draws and suffered nine losses. No club in the bottom half have lost fewer games than Wayne Rooney’s men.
