Middlesbrough vs Nottingham Forest Match Preview

Middlesbrough saw their winless run stretched to nine games in midweek going down 1-0 at home to high-flying Leeds.  It means the Teesiders are deep in a relegation battle as they have taken just four points from their last nine and after the weekend sit in 22nd two points from safety.

At the Riverside, Boro are five without a victory which includes back-to-back defeats though the other three have finished in a draw.  None of the last four and just of the last nine at this ground have gone over 2.5 goals.

Nottingham Forest stretched their unbeaten run to three matches and picked up an important three points when winning 1-0 at Cardiff in midweek.  The East Midlands outfit sit fourth but the gap between them and Leeds in second is as many as nine points

Away from the City Ground, the Tricky Trees are tough to beat losing just one of their last six and two of two of the last 11.  Tiago Silva has found the back of the net in two of his last three Championship road appearances.

Bookmakers are struggling to split the pair but it is the visitors who should be the favourites given the respective forms of both sides.  Forest can be backed here and such is the way Boro are losing games (each of their last three and four of the last five) they look worth taking here.

Neither side are prolific in front of goal so you can enhance the price on the Tricky Trees to win this game by backing them to win and the game to go under 3.5 goals.
