Middlesbrough crestMiddlesbrough, Recent Form

most recent

Middlesbrough have set themselves up nicely for this match by securing a 1-0 away win against Birmingham City in their previous league match.  During that encounter they had 47% possession and had 12 attempts on goal with 3 on target, while their opponents hit 0 of their 7 shots on goal.  

Manager Michael Carrick will be reasonably pleased with his team's performances in front of goal, having scored 8 goals in their last 6 games, but will want to tighten up his defence with 6 goals conceded in the same period.  They have scored in 5 of their last 6 home games, but so far this season, they have conceded at least one goal in 13 of their 18 games at Riverside Stadium.  

They have had a good run of form recently, winning 4 out of their last 6 games.

Blackburn Rovers crestBlackburn Rovers, Recent Form

most recent

A 1-1 draw and a point gained against Plymouth Argyle in their previous meeting will have been considered a fairly decent for Blackburn Rovers last time out.  In that game they had 29% possession and managed 8 attempts on goal, with 4 on target, compared to Plymouth Argyle who had 20 attempts and 7 on target.  

When it comes to attacking power John Eustace will be justly satisfied with his squad's performances of late, which has seen them chalk up 6 goals in their last 6 matches. However, it hasn't all been going well, and questions remain about their defence with 7 goals lost in those 6 matches resulting in some crucial points dropped.  They have scored in 5 of their last 6 games, but so far this season they have conceded a goal at least once in 32 of their 37 games.  

Their recent poor run of form away from home has left them without an away win in 9 games.  

Having scored 4 goals in his last 6 league games for Blackburn Rovers, Sammie Szmodics will be looking to keep his tally up with a goal in their next outing.  

Middlesbrough vs. Blackburn Rovers Head to head

Last time these two teams met in the league it ended in disappointment for Middlesbrough, losing 2-1 to Blackburn Rovers.  

In the past 7 away matches at Middlesboro in the league, The Riversiders have consistently found the net, scoring at least 1 goal in each of those encounters.  

Blackburn have managed to keep their hosts at bay for a very long time in this league fixture, denying Middlesboro a win at home for 8 games in a row.  

Sam Gallagher has scored on each of Blackburn's last 0 visits to Middlesboro.
