Middlesbrough Preview – Can Middlesbrough halt slide?

Wednesday night’s hosts, Middlesbrough, will be desperate to halt an 8-match sequence without a win in the Championship when they play host to high-flying Leeds United as Middlesbrough manager, Jonathan Woodgate, faces one of his former clubs in this crucial clash between two teams at either ends of the Championship table.

An earlier 4-match winning streak which included victories over Stoke City, Huddersfield Town, West Brom and Preston North End had seemingly set Middlesbrough back on their feet and away from the danger of relegation, but a subsequent 8-match run without a win has landed Boro back into the relegation dogfight.

Boro have lost 4 and drawn 4 of these last 8 matches in the Championship and they now find themselves looking nervously over their shoulders with just a 3-point cushion separating them from third from bottom club, Wigan Athletic.

However, Middlesbrough have lost just 1 of their last 10 matches at home amidst an overall record of 6-7-4 16/16 with goals being few and far between as 13 of their 17 home matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Leeds United Preview – Can Leeds win three on the trot?

Recent back-to-back wins against Bristol City and Reading, both by 1-0 margins and both at Elland Road, have helped relieve Leeds’ jitters and consolidated 2nd place for the Yorkshire outfit ahead of this tricky looking trip up to the north-east to face Middlesbrough.

Leeds head into this Wednesday night clash having put together a 3-match unbeaten run in the Championship which also includes a point in a 1-1 draw away from home at Brentford, which will have come as a huge relief following 4 defeats from their previous 5 matches overall.

However, Leeds know they can’t afford any more slip-ups with the likes of Nottingham Forest breathing down their necks in 3rd place and just 3 points behind them, so Leeds will need to improve upon recent results away from home which have seen the visitors without a win from their last 4 matches on their travels.

Goals haven’t always flowed on the road for Leeds either though as 11 of their 17 away matches have also been under 2.5 goals.
