Middlesbrough vs Preston Match Preview
Middlesbrough made it back-to-back defeats as they lost 4-1 at home to Sheffield Wednesday going two down in six minutes and being 4-1 down at the interval. It continues a tough start for life under Jonathan Woodgate with just nine points from their first nine games.
At the Riverside, Boro have had a mixed start to the season with two victories, two defeats and a draw in the league. The Teesiders have managed to net just four times from five appearances in front of their own fans.
Preston drew 3-3 at home to Bristol City at the weekend to stretch their unbeaten run to six league matches. North-End are one of two sides (the other being West Brom) to top the division goalscoring charts with 17 goals.
Away from Deepdale, the Lilywhites lost their first three games but since have picked up four points from trips to Nottingham Forest and Birmingham. The Lancashire side let seven in from their first three but in their last two have conceded just once.
Bookmakers make Middlesbrough the marginal favourites for the fixture but you would not want to be siding with them given the result at the weekend. A better bet is to take North-End to continue their recent form and to net first and be ahead at the interval as they would be top of the table if the league was settled on scores after 45 minutes.
