Middlesbrough Preview – Can Boro return to winning ways?

Middlesbrough languish in 15th place in the Championship table after a patchy run of results so far. Boro have picked up just three wins, suffered five defeats and battled to three draws. They have scored 11 and conceded 13.

Neil Warnock’s side go into this one having lost three of their past four. Before the international break, Boro lost 2-0 to a Hull City side that had not won since the opening weekend of the season.

Our betting prediction:
Middlesbrough to be winning at half time & full time

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1237 GMT, Friday 15 October)

Middlesbrough have struggled at home of late. Before a 2-0 win over Sheffield United in their previous match at the Riverside, Warnock’s boys had taken just one point from seven on offer on their own patch.

After the poor defeat in Hull a fortnight ago, Middlesbrough will be keen to return to winning ways here. The home victory is priced at 4/5.

Peterborough United Preview – Can Posh return home with a massive three points?

Peterborough United have found life in the Championship tough going so far. If Derby County had not had a points deduction, Posh would be propping up the league table right now.

Darren Ferguson’s boys are in 23rd spot after collecting a mere eight points from a possible 33. They have found the net 12 times but have shipped 23 goals at the other end. Posh head to the Riverside having lost six of their past eight in the Championship.

Middlesbrough vs Peterborough United Betting Advice

These two sides last met in the 2018-19 FA Cup. Middlesbrough wiped the floor with Peterborough in that one, with Britt Assombalonga (2), George Friend, Lewis Wing and Ashley Fletcher on target in a 5-0 Boro romp.

The last league meeting came in the 2012-13 Championship. Boro edged a five-goal thriller in Peterborough, though the game at the Riverside ended in a goalless draw.


Key Facts – Middlesbrough vs Peterborough United Betting Tip

  • Middlesbrough have lost three of their past four
  • Peterborough have taken zero points from five away matches this term
  • Posh’s last victory over Boro came way back in 1994


With the pair in poor form, both teams will be gunning for all three points on Saturday. Boro have been far too inconsistent this season, but they should get past lowly Peterborough at the Riverside.

Posh have lost every away game so far, failing to score in three of those. Have a punt on the home side to win to nil at 21/10. Boro will be looking for a fast start and a lead at the break. With that in mind, put some money on the hosts to be winning at half time and full time at 15/8.
