Middlesbrough Preview – Can Boro break into top six?

Middlesbrough will be in confident mood ahead of this upcoming clash against fellow in-form opponents, Nottingham Forest, as the hosts bring a four-match unbeaten run into Boxing Day which includes three wins.

Boro had previously seemed to lose their way in the Championship after failing to win any games in a five-match period but recent wins against Huddersfield Town, Swansea City and most impressive of all, a 1-0 home win over Bournemouth, have set the north-east club back on track.

The hosts have lost just two of their last eight at home but goals could be in short supply as eight of Middlesbrough’s 12 home games have been under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:

Nottingham Forest Preview – Can Forest continue ascent?

Having put together a solid looking nine-match sequence in the Championship, Nottingham Forest now appear to be on the threshold of breaking into the play-off pack as they trail 6th placed Stoke City by just a slender one-point margin.

The arrival of manager, Steve Cooper, has certainly had a positive effect upon this Nottingham Forest outfit who had previously appeared to be floundering under former boss, Chris Hughton, but the Tricky Trees have now lost just once in their last 16 matches overall.

Form away from home has also benefitted from Forest’s resurgence as the visitors are unbeaten in their last nine games on the road, while six of Nottingham Forest’s 11 away games to date have also seen under 2.5 goals.
