Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough and Alex Neil’s Preston North End go head-to-head in EFL Championship action at the Riverside Stadium on Tuesday night. Boro are eight points behind sixth-place Barnsley with ten games to go, while Preston have slipped down to 15th after a poor run of results. Will Warnock’s men pick up another precious three points on home turf, or can Neil’s troops cause an upset at the Riverside?

Middlesbrough Preview – Can Boro add another three points to their tally?

Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough have been in patchy form in 2021. Since the turn of the year, Boro have won six, lost seven and drawn two of 15 Championship games. They have struggled at the Riverside, winning just two of the last eight.

Middlesbrough will be hoping to kick on from last Saturday’s 3-0 home win over Stoke City. The club from North Yorkshire were excellent against the Potters, with Grant Hall, Paddy McNair and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing on target.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1716 GMT, Monday 15 March)

Boro have won two of their last three and have only lost one of the previous four. With tough away games at Millwall and Bournemouth to come in their next two, Middlesbrough would love another three points on their own patch this Tuesday. The home win is priced at 10/11.

Preston North End Preview – 19th league loss for the Lilywhites?

Preston North End are one of the most unpredictable sides in the division. They have claimed wins over Brentford and Reading, and drawn with Norwich City and Bournemouth, but only Wycombe Wanderers and Sheffield Wednesday – the current bottom two – have suffered more defeats.

Preston head to the Riverside having won only one of their past seven in the Championship. Since a 3-0 home win over Huddersfield Town at the end of last month, the Lilywhites have taken just one point from the last nine on offer. As a result, they have dropped down to 15th in the table.

Preston have not won many at home this season, but they thumped Middlesbrough when the pair squared off at Deepdale in December. The game sprung into life after a relatively quiet hour, with Brad Potts, Scott Sinclair and Emil Ris Jakobsen netting in the last 30 minutes to give North End a comfortable 3-0 win.
