Middlesbrough Preview – Can Boro build on last weekend’s vital victory?

Middlesbrough eased their relegation fears by picking up a vital victory at fellow strugglers Charlton Athletic last time out. In a true relegation six-pointer in the capital, an early strike by Paddy McNair was enough to give Boro a much-needed 1-0 win.

Victory in south London last week was Middlesbrough’s first Championship triumph since winning against Preston North End at Deepdale on New Year’s Day. Although the Teesside outfit are not out of the woods in terms of relegation just yet, they are now two points above the bottom three in 19th place.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1606 GMT, Thursday 12 March)

Each of Middlesbrough’s last three Championship wins have all come away from home, beating West Bromwich Albion, Preston and Charlton. Boro’s last home triumph was a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield Town on Boxing Day. Only six clubs have picked up fewer home points.

After last weekend’s priceless victory at Charlton, Middlesbrough would love to follow that up with three points against Swansea at the Riverside on Saturday. At this moment time, the home win is priced at 13/10.

Swansea City Preview – Will the Swans return to South Wales with three points in the bag?

Steve Cooper made a stunning start to life at the Liberty Stadium, guiding Swansea City to top spot during the first international break of the season. However, the Swans’ campaign is in danger of petering out, as the Welsh club have won just three Championship fixtures since the turn of the year.

Swansea head to the Riverside having won only one of their previous nine, drawing five and losing three of the other eight. The Swans have claimed just one win from their past 12 league and cup encounters on the road.

The Welsh club are still in with a shout of taking one of the play-off spots, but they are three points behind sixth place in 11th. Nevertheless, after holding high-flying West Brom to a goalless draw at the Liberty last Saturday, can they build on that with victory at the Riverside at the weekend?


Middlesbrough vs Swansea City Betting Advice

With neither side in good form, Saturday’s big clash at the Riverside could go either way. Middlesbrough have struggled at home pretty much all season, while the Swans are without an away win since December.


Key Facts – Middlesbrough vs Swansea City Betting Tip

  • Middlesbrough’s win last weekend was their first since New Year’s Day
  • The Swans have won just one of their previous 12 league and cup games away from home
  • Swansea have won their last two meetings with Boro, both by a 3-1 scoreline


Swansea ran out comfortable 3-1 winners when the teams locked horns in South Wales a few months back. Andre Ayew was the Swans’ hero, netting twice. Sam Surridge was also on the scoresheet for Swansea, while Marcus Tavernier got Boro’s goal.

Swansea are unbeaten in the last four meetings, with the last two both ending in 3-1 wins for the Welsh side. However, we can see Middlesbrough holding their guests to a draw in this one. I’m tipping the draw and both teams to score, which is nicely priced at 10/3. Also, put a few quid on Ayew to score anytime at 11/5.
