Middlesbrough and Huddersfield meet tonight with the objective to end their long winless run in the Championship

Middlesbrough have gone five matches without recording a victory since the win against Nottingham and overall have just two wins in the last ten matches, the other win being against the poorest team in the division Wycombe. This bad run has seen them trailing by six points from the playoff spot, but there is still time and plenty matches to play to turn things around. 

One of the biggest issues for Middlesbrough has been their inconsistency and the weakness in attack. Middlesbrough has the weakest attack if the top ten teams while the defense has not been in good form lately conceding almost in evey match. Nine out of last ten matches has seen Middlesbrough conceding at least one goal, and this matter should be addressed very quick by Neil Warnock if they want to get back to playoff race. 

For improving their attacking power they signed on loan two experienced wingers Bolasie from Everton and Kebano from Fulham. 

I believe tonight is a good opportunity to turn back to winning ways for Boro as they face the worst performing team in the division in last six matches. Huddersfield has failed to win yet a match in 2021 and have five defeats in last seven matches. 

This bad run of Huddersfield culminated few days ago when they faced the poorest team in the division Wycombe and they were leading by 2-0 but then they were defeated 3-2 by Wycombe in what could be one of the most surprising comebacks in the division this year. 

This result sunk Huddersfield deeper into the relegation battle and now they are only five points from the drop zone. 

So tonight I expect a tight match, but I believe that Middlesbrough will fight more for the win and they have the capacities to overcome this recent bad run. The only issue for tonight will be absence of Fry, Tavernier and Bolasie, but nevertheless I expect Boro to capitalize on the poor form and morale of Huddersfield and win this match. 

WIN Score: 2:1 Profit: +0.9
