Middlesbrough vs Bristol City Match Preview
Middlesbrough find themselves out of the play-off spots following four straight defeats (including 1-0 to Norwich at the weekend) and no victory from their last five. The pressure is starting to grow under manager Tony Pulis as what looked like an automatic promotion hopeful are now in danger of not going up at all.
At the Riverside Stadium, the Teesiders have lost three straight and won just one of their last six and two of ten. A lack of home goals has been an issue for Boro of late having netted just two times from their last three while not since 10th March 2018 has a game at this ground gone over 3.5 goals.
Bristol City put a five-game winless run behind them with an impressive 3-2 road success at Sheffield United on Saturday. They are now seventh which has them one point and one place behind Derby and with this game in hand.
Away from Ashton Gate, the Robins have lost just one of their last nine and this defeat came at league leaders Norwich. In each of their last nine on their travels, they have managed to net at least once with them not netting more than once in two of their last three.
Having watched Middlesbrough at the weekend it is clear confidence is in short supply and it will not take much for the home fans to turn on them. Bristol City are a side who thrive on confidence and that will be in high supply given their success at Bramall Lane at the weekend. I like the look of the Robins to win this one with the safety of draw no bet.
Andreas Weimann netted a hat-trick at the weekend and it might be worth sticking with him here as he is a player who tends to score in batches. The Teesiders also showed against the Canaries they can be undone by a little pace and movement.
