Middlesbrough Preview – Will Boro pick up a precious three points?

Middlesbrough have been excellent since Chris Wilder took over, with the new boss turning the club from mid-table obscurity into genuine promotion contenders. Under the former Sheffield United manager, Boro have picked up an impressive nine league wins.

In the FA Cup in midweek, Middlesbrough knocked out another Premier League giant. Having seen off Manchester United at Old Trafford in round four, a Josh Coburn extra-time goal gave the Reds a 1-0 victory over Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur in the fifth round on Tuesday. However, they fell to a shock 3-2 defeat at Barnsley in their last league encounter.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1007 GMT, Friday 4 March)

The loss at Oakwell was no doubt a setback, but Middlesbrough will be eager to strike back with maximum points on Saturday. The bookies are offering 17/20 for a home win.

Luton Town Preview – Can the Hatters make it four league wins on the bounce?

Luton Town could be the dark horse in the race for the top six this season. Not many would have had them down to be promotion contenders before a ball was kicked but, once again, Nathan Jones is doing an incredible job.

Luton have been in stunning form since early December, securing nine wins from 13 Championship matches. Last weekend’s 1-0 success over Derby County, which was a third victory on the spin, lifted the Hatters into the play-off places.
