Middlesbrough Preview – Boro to get back to winning ways on home soil?

Middlesbrough are having a decent season under experienced manager Neil Warnock. The Teessiders are currently in seventh spot in the Championship table, three points adrift of the play-offs. Overall, Boro have won 11, drawn six and lost eight of 25 league matches.

Middlesbrough have had a mixed bag of results of late, though. Since picking up three straight wins, Boro have lost three of their following five. Last Sunday, Warnock’s men were beaten at home by Blackburn Rovers, which was their second successive home league loss.

Both teams to score

Boro have lost three of their last four in all competitions, so they could really do with maximum points from this crucial Championship fixture. Middlesbrough are the odds-on favourites in this one, with the bookies pricing the home win at just 4/5.

Rotherham United Preview – Can the Millers return home with a positive result?

Rotherham United have had a tough time since returning to the Championship from EFL League One. So far, Paul Warne’s men have taken 20 points from 22 league games. They occupy the final relegation spot, though the club from South Yorkshire have games in hand on their relegation rivals.

Rotherham picked up a huge win at Derby County recently, with Jamie Lindsay scoring late to give the Millers a priceless three points at Pride Park. Rotherham were then involved in a six-goal thriller with Stoke City last Tuesday, with the game at the New York Stadium ending in an enthralling 3-3 draw.
