Middlesbrough vs Preston Match Preview
Middlesbrough saw their automatic promotion hopes put to an end last time out with a 2-1 home loss to Brentford. The gap between them and Bristol City is seventh and they could fall victim to a chasing pack in good form.
At the Riverside, Boro are struggling having won just one of their last four and two of the previous eight. Six of the last eight visitors to this ground have found the back of the net with the two that did not struggling outfits in QPR and Ipswich.
Preston stretched their unbeaten run to ten last time out with a 1-0 road success at local rivals Blackburn. It means they are keeping the gap on Bristol City and Derby just above them in the table.
Away from Deepdale, the Lilywhites have won each of their last five on the road but these all came against bottom-half opponents. North-End have conceded just two goals from their last four on their travels.
The visitors look the selection here given they have won each of their last five on the road while the Teesiders have won just two of their last eight at their own place. The draw is a risk so be sure to play North-End in the draw no bet market.
Both teams to score also looks worth taking as the Lilywhites have 12 from their last five on the road while the hosts have netted at least once in each of their last five at their own ground. I could not put anyone off putting both teams to score together with over 2.5 goals in a double also.
